This Roman youth hostel project focuses on the issues of urban nature, notions of privacy and indoor/outdoor connections. Valuing the architectural devices related to the use of vegetation in a densely built context, the project takes on a new architectural image.
The operation, far from simplistic camouflage, opens up different possible scenarios: the organization of the rooms and sanitary facilities, the reduction of distribution spaces and the careful positioning of vertical circulations, the flexible organization of the public floors and the presence of quality open spaces allow the building to be adapted even to major program changes. The building can not only meet the needs of the hostel, but can also accommodate other very different activities. And last but not least … the transformation of the entire structure into a contemporary, international residential building.
