Hôtel Traiano, Rome

______

The project is a new kind of sumptuous public housing, re- exploring the grand communal lifestyle of the 18th century French ‘hôtel’. Designed from the canopy bed outwards, through a series of enfilades arranged to give pockets of secrecy and discretion, to communal washrooms, terraces, gardens, and out into the ruins of Rome’s Trajan’s Market which it knits back into the fabric of the city.
