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.
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
