Rethinking everyday living to meet new market requirements.
Building on what has been built means merging the present with the past to create buildings projected towards the future. There is no better place in the world than the Eternal City to apply this philosophy. Indeed, the Flaminio Project wants to use a part of the existing building to build a new science museum.
The decision to add a pure volume is in line with the codes of contemporary expression and will allow new functions and activities to be included. It is an austere form that does not create spatial or visual confusion given the dynamic presence of the MAXXI Museum on the other side of the road. This part of the site is part of the cultural sphere, but also overlooks the main piazza complemented by businesses and a tower hotel, the landmark of the whole project.
The concept of duality can also be seen in the residential part with luxury housing next to social housing in a continuity of space that does not allow car access. The green element can be seen in the house terraces, on the roofs and in the pedestrian boulevard that cuts through the site.
Integration – both spatial, social and functional – is the principle that has guided the design concept. An interlinking and merging of several aspects of contemporary everyday living, interpreted in an innovative, sustainable way which not only increases the property value of the area but also the surrounding buildings. Different user flows and different activities to offer one dynamic and stimulating solution. A choice that is in line with the trends of contemporary society in which plurality is seen as a moment of enhancement and growth for the city. It is a two-fold achievement – urban redevelopment and an increase in property value.
