Design intentions The new building will be at the boundary between nature and built, with the `artificial` in the city on one side and the "natural" in the hills surrounding the other. In a broader context, in fact, the area comes into visual relationship with the Park of Villa Giulia, Mount Fiascone to Conconello, in an ongoing confrontation between the "natural" and "artificial."
The willingness of the project is to get connected with the residual "naturalness" of the place, creating a new "artificial". From this desire came the metaphor of "house on the tree", or "the tree", so the new building, within the limits imposed by small size of the lot (only 54 square meters) gives not up to the "natural", and then exacerbates it, becoming a kind of "artificial" tree. To emphasize this concept contributes the courtyard of the second floor, which is not visible from the road, allowing the building to have a more intimate and confidential area, in keeping with the introverted character that we wanted to give to the building.
