The atelier, situated in the very back wall of the rose garden of Villa Giulia in Rome, acts as an artist dwelling for seasonal usage. The cube, measuring 5x5x5m houses all the main functions needed as both the living- and working space for inhabiting artists.
Scale model M 1:20
The mezzanine-like first floor, with a railing wall continuing the shape of the exterior garden wall, makes room for an inspiring garden-view from the entire dwelling. It also provides a working space for larger sized projects in the ground floor of the atelier space, with the full height of 5 meters.
When pushing the limits for how narrow a stairway can be in a compact housing, the level of comfort is increased by giving it breathing room through a floor-to ceiling window from the landing.
