Located in the south of Turin's old town is the Crocetta district, home (at via F.lli Carle, on the corner between Corso Alcide De Gasperi and Corso Duca degli Abruzzi) to Residenza Carle, a residential building that has undergone a complete renovation, including a rearrangement of its internal spaces to create 21 apartments.
But a key aim of the project was to ensure maximum energy efficiency and this was achieved by adopting the most innovative measures offered by today's technology and contemporary architecture.

The Acidic series chosen for the Residenza Carle lends the building sophistication but also an original, unique personality.
Measuring 120×120 cm, the size of the slabs highlights the strength and warmth of the corten steel shade, combining tradition and creativity within a ceramics collection that brings out all the beauty of this metal. The seamless finish curtain walls built with Acidic, with its contrasting light and shade, increase the visual impact of the entire building.
But the aesthetics are not the only area in which the building has been enhanced. Fondovalle’s Italian-made porcelain stoneware also guarantees the maximum functional performance (in terms of durability and strength) that only ceramics can provide and has been integrated with a pioneering coat system to ensure full insulation with advanced thermal and energy specifications.
Private residence Verona
At the foot of an ancient Roman gateway, known as "Porta Leoni", this historically and architecturally rich home is located in the heart of the city of Verona.
Careful restoration has allowed the installation of modern, functional facilities.
The internal spaces have been reworked to modernise the various areas and make them brighter, creating a large open space in the central area of the house.Action
Central Bus Station
The Central Bus Station (CBS) in Sofia, Bulgaria is the main station in the area, a primary hub for national and regional transit. Built in 2004, it covers a total area of over 7,000 m2.Portland
ALEJA shopping centre in Ljubljana
The Aleja shopping centre was constructed with materials of the very highest quality. Ceramica Fondovalle was chosen to cover the interiors of the delicatessen sector of the Interspar hypermarket with concrete effect porcelain stoneware tiles from the Portland collection, in Lassen colour and 120x60 size.
Thanks to the striking patterning which resembles hand-trowelled concrete, the overall visual impact is extremely attractive. The simple, neutral colour adds value to the location, transforming the area into a small corner to be savoured with the eyes.Portland
Private Residence Spain
In Pamplona, an important stop along the Way of St James and capital city of the Chartered Community of Navarre in northern Spain, Fondovalle has played a leading role in the renovation of a private home. More specifically, it is a stylish, contemporary set of apartments in which the communal areas have been refurbished using the Action series, in the Light version.Action
