A Roman Palazzo

Rome, Italy

This Roman Palazzo along Via Giulia sought to appropriately infill a small parking lot currently disrupting the urban vitality of the block. By using the historic Palazzo typology, this became the site for the proposed Academy for the Arts, a learning institution meant to be a center for research and artisanal practice.

The ground floor features mercantile space with the most significant academic and workshop rooms on the Piano Nobile. Enfiladed rooms reflect the typology on main floors, while load bearing walls carry up to form the affordable apartments for the researchers in residency. The palazzo angles with the street to receive the people coming from S. Maria in Vallicella, ultimately responding to the existing Roman streets and visual termini through its form. 

The Plans

Working with irregular forms and playing with the use of poche.
