House For An Architecture CriticRealized
The intervention consists in the extraordinary maintenance of a private apartment. The building in which the property is located is one of the Works of significant architectural and urban interest and belongs, according to the General Regulatory Plan, to the twentieth-century expansion fabrics with punctiform building subdivisions of the Historic City.
The property is part of a building designed by architects Vincenzo Monaco and Amedeo Luccichenti in the first half of the 1950s. The structure of the building is in reinforced concrete, the external finishes in plaster with large glass mirrors with Douglas wooden window frames. The entrance front is characterized by the exposed concrete structure and tuff infill panels with thin travertine recurrences. The side facades are marked by the ribbons of continuous balconies with plaster and glass parapets.
The proposed interventions concern only the internal parts of the real estate unit and consist in the demolition of some portions of internal partitions for the creation of new connections between the rooms, in the movement of the kitchen to the south front of the apartment, in the remaking of the flooring, cladding and of the bathroom systems and in the painting of the internal environments only.
