The Aurelian Walls of Rome are the largest archeological remain in the city, a large structure that has once been built far out in the country side around it to protect it yet today stretches within it offering little to no function.
The project proposes to transform a certain moment within the wall, south of the Villa Borghese park, where the wall has slightly fallen apart, into a jewelry maker’s dwelling. The proposed residence proposes the use of a minimalist Siena marble box that is seemingly inserted into the void of what used to be a watchtower within the wall. The dwelling consists of a work studio and living space upstairs and a modest store for the jewellery to be sold in downstairs.
