If these walls could talk, oh, the tales they’d tell. The spaces in which you sleep and socialise have long been inspired by art, architecture and design. Are we an art gallery posing as a hotel or vice versa? We’ll let you decide, but this is our story and we’re sticking with it. Come pay us a visit and we’ll be happy to show you around.
The DUPARC CONTEMPORARY SUITES, originally known as Residence Du Parc, was born from the dream of architects Laura Petrazzini and Corrado Levi.
Built entirely of visible reinforced concrete, our Turin hotel is one of the great expressions of Italian ‘70s rationalism and a fascinating piece of architectural work.
Inside the hotel, there are large open spaces with bright rooms overlooking Turin’s hills and urban landscape through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows. The atmosphere is sophisticated and elegant, enriched by natural light and bright colours.
The Hall and original apartments showcase impressive works of art from the sixties and early seventies. Highlights include the Parenthesis Lamp by Achille Castiglioni and Piero Manzù, the Marsala (1971) chair by Michel Ducaroy, the Stadio (1966) e Selene (1966) tables by Vico Magistretti and the Sirrah (1969) lamps by Franco AlbiniUnique works of art can also be discovered in the new apartments, which were remodelled to reflect the original contemporary style of DUPARC.
The entire building is elegantly decorated with works of art. Apartments feature pictures by Mario Schifano and works by Michelangelo Pistoletto. In the large Hall and Restaurant, there are pieces by Giovanni Anselmo, Giuseppe Penone, Gilberto Zorio, Thomas Struth, Fischli & Weiss, Francesco Lo Savio, Alighiero Boetti, Anselm Reyle, Richard Woods and many others.
