Descrizione del progetto
The project intervenes on an historical building, a 5 storey “palazzo” in a residential area in a North-Western
borough of Rome, by one of the most famous Art Nouveau Italian architects, Gino Coppede’. The construction
included an Art-Nouveau exotic garden, dilapidated after having been neglected for many years.
The project is based on a strong separation between the historical building, restored and brought back to the
original state as possible and the new construction. This approach, that avoids ambiguous contaminations
between the pre-existing elements and the new ones, is fully represented in the small church realized as a building within the building, an ark made of wooden arches wrapping the space (12 – in the number of the Apostles).
The old stairs have been demolished and replaced by a new wooden sculptural stairs that connect all levels and
encourage to visit the building, up to the scenic terrace at the fourth floor that oversees the entire city.
