Rococo?

 

Rome, Italy - 2012-present

CONSULTING                                 PLANNING                             MANAGEMENT

 Renovation of  a large Roman terrace, currently under construction 

Project: reorganization of the outdoor living spaces introducing an outdoor kitchen with dining areas, water elements; contemporay fountain, multiple pergolas and a greenhouse.

 

Concept:  A terrace in the heart of sixteenth-century Rome, overlooking the botanical garden, offers a pretext to question  the spirit of the place where two very strong architectural structures dictate the constraints of the site: Villa Farnesina one of the most noble and harmonious achievements of the Italian Renaissance and Palazzo Corsini, a prominent late-baroque palace  erected  at the beginning of the seventeen century. In addition the botanical garden, with collections of palms and bamboo, the water of the fountains and ancient sculptures scattered in the garden lends to the surrounding cultural richness.
