Blending in with a Genoese Neighbourhood
Located in the elegant and upscale seaside neighbourhood of Albaro with sweeping views of the Ligurian Sea, the building site was formerly part of an adjacent convent run by the Good Shepherd Institute, which housed women in need. After being closed for many years, the building was acquired by real estate company Trident RE, ed with the intention of renovating the existing structure. Unfortunately, logistical challenges ultimately made renovation untenable and instead dictated a complete reconstruction project and subsequently an entirely new residential building. Despite its new build fabric, the style of Palazzo Arbà’s architecture refers to that of the typical 1960’s era residences in the surrounding area, yet it reinterprets this aesthetic in a contemporary fashion.
