In the heart of Turin's promenade and shopping, in via Lagrange 12, a residential project has been inaugurated which presents itself as a dialogue between historical neoclassical forms and contemporary architecture, a residence that has the flavor of the timeless style for which the city ​​is loved in the world.

Citizens are given back a renovated historic building, in balance between ancient forms, cutting-edge technologies, design and comfort. An area of ​​3500 square meters, seven exclusive apartments designed by the architects of the Building Group (building.it) in collaboration with the Pininfarina studio, a store on two floors and two penthouses with a panoramic terrace make up the project. Deco, an Italian decking company, took care of covering the panoramic terraces of the two penthouses, for a total of 500 m2.

The product chosen for the project is UltraShield® composite wood, in the elegant antique gray color that fits perfectly into the residence, offering the aesthetics and warmth of natural wood to the advantages of the latest generation of composite wood. Thanks to a special anti-scratch and anti-stain plastic shield that externally protects the plank, UltraShield® is in fact a pleasant product to the touch, beautiful, durable, resistant and immune to color variations over time.

It is also an eco-sustainable choice: the wood flour that makes up the profile is made from recycled shavings, with zero impact on deforestation, and the component in HDPE (high density polyethylene), is a substitute for PVC, completely biodecomposable .

As stated by Paolo Damiani, one of the three co-founders of Déco: "from 2010, the year the company was founded, to date, our turnover has increased tenfold, thanks to the quality offered in terms of product, service provided and customer relationship. , in addition to the professionalism of our sales network. The merit of this success is also due to the UltraShield® profile chosen for this residence, a Déco exclusive, which is revolutionizing the way decking is interpreted throughout the country ”.
