PRELIMINARY DESIGN
Transforming the existing territories and drawing the contemporary. The operation combines the construction of urban space and the landscape potentiality: by one hand the resolution of purely technical issues, ensuring the safety of roads and providing services for the new settlement, by the other hand, the building of the relationship with the distant landscape -the sea, the islands, the horizon." A long panoramic walk, used as a seafront, runs along the top of the rock: both the possibility of seeing the landscape elements that emerge on the horizon, the Circeo, islands, sea, the cities of the plains; both getting off to the rocky soil through the walkways, which retie the urban tissue at different altitudes and give access to the orchards and the gardens along the slope. Below the promenade level, some volumes are obtained for the care of the gardens or, alternatively, for a small room in the case of converting the green area to public park. At the other end of the promenade, close to the town, a horizontal plane is suspended over the line of roofs to seek the views of the sea and to create a square that hides a car parks. Above is a clean and airy place where you can enjoy the sun and the landscape, beneath that, a parking for the residences, sized for 20 cars complete with elevator and accessible through a separate road system, allowing a better flow of traffic.
