Alda Fendi – Esperimenti基金会在举办展览之余,其街道层还开设有众多文化导向的精品店,以及为来访艺术家和艺术爱好者们打造的住所。

The Fondazione Alda Fendi – Esperimenti provides exhibition spaces (through a cultural cooperation partnership with the Hermitage Museum) and culture oriented boutiques that open onto the street, as well as small residences available to visiting artists, and even art lovers…

‘This is not the place to come up with a sanitized creation. We’re trying to do the opposite; this is a living thing, we’re playing on how the building looks, we’re drawing on everything that’s there.’

基金会坐落在古罗马广场——历史上最为辉煌的场所之一。它占据了三栋旧公寓楼,距离维斯塔神庙和雅努斯拱门仅一箭之遥。这意味着它可以将帕拉蒂尼山的前景和罗马城的360°全景收入眼底。显然,我们置身于罗马历史的核心地带,这里的建筑拥有独一无二的本国特色,并且随着时间流逝经历了无数次的变动。19世纪和20世纪的居⺠留下了带有围墙的窗户、奇异的隔 墙、风靡一时的瓷砖贴乃至参差不齐的裂缝,不一而足。

It stands on one of the most illustrious places in all history: the Roman Forum. The Fondazione Alda Fendi – Esperimenti occupies three former apartment buildings a stone’s throw from the Temple of Vesta and the Arch of Janus. This means the Fondazione has a front-row view of the Palatine Hill as well as panoramic 360° views of Rome, with its celebrated hills and its array of venerable old domes. We are clearly at the very heart of Roman history here, in buildings that were originally designed to be exclusively domestic, and have sustained countless alterations over time. Nineteenth- and twentieth-century inhabitants left behind walled-up windows, bizarre partitions, period tiles and jagged cracks, among other things.

‘We’ll work starting with every fracture in the walls, starting with every type of window, with every type of material, with every window- frame…’

Constructing anything in Rome is fraught. Architects are normally required to respect the hierarchy of historic structures, and so we’ve adhered to strict simplicity. Over the façades, we’ve kept everything bearing witness to the passage of time… all the better to bring out the different archaeological stratifications, and to enable people to discover a building that has stopped aging – without resorting to cosmetic surgery, either (we cherish all its wrinkles as signs of character and have preserved them). This rule reinforces the sense of how strongly these buildings are moored in history.

‘Art is there in the boutiques, in the exhibitions showing in the different spaces, in the exhibitions of artists living and working here on the different floors, it should fill the restaurant, the courtyard, the stairs, the lifts…’

The context doesn’t allow substantial changes to be made to the façades, which are listed, but we’ve been able to rethink the way the surrounding landscapes are framed through the windows and from the terraces.

Revisiting the building also meant making use of all the different internal features to create 25 apartments that are all unique. Each apartment also has differently framed views, thanks to the way the windows have been knocked around over the years, with many of them being reduced in size and some even bricked up.

‘We’re back to the problem here of intention: we need to reveal the different peculiarities and then add one more – one that reveals the others and shows all that’s happened here.’
As Gaston Bachelard puts it in The Poetics of Space: ‘The thing that characterises a space first and foremost is the amount of time for living it has managed to accommodate.’

The really substantial changes have mainly been made inside. We developed a particular process that involved printing photographic linings on the interior shutters showing glimpses of the apartments as they were before work began. These photos create inside and outside trompe-l’oeil installations that catch the natural light like reflectors, showcasing the printed images.

When the buildings are lit up at night from outside, the trees around them cast their shadows over the façades. This night-time display is made even more vividly probing thanks to colours programmed by the new interior shutters…

厨房和浴室引入了最为先进的设施,将公寓内部已经具有的现代感进一步强调出来。不锈钢体块作为室内最为显著的部分,与斑驳的墙壁形成了鲜明的对比。墙壁的光泽本身便来自涂料、灰泥、裂缝以及各种混合材料的交叠, 是对时光流逝以及自我沉淀的一种具象化的阐释。

The touches of modernity that already existed inside the apartments have been accentuated by introducing essential state-of-the-art fit- outs such as kitchens and bathrooms. These pared-back stand- out objects are stainless-steel blocks, providing a striking contrast to the mottled walls, whose patinas are themselves revelations of the different layers of paint and plaster, fractures and mixed materials. A sculptural interpretation of the passage of time and the process of sedimentation.

家具元素以干净的流线形式安装在室内,从而在其所代表的现代生活与周围遗留下来的“古代世界”之间建立起尽可能强烈的反差:地板砖保持了原始样貌,却被全新的材料所围绕,同时在门楣、柱子和楼梯等位置加入了新的钢结构——所有这些元素在历史的沉积物中永久性地标示出一个新的层面。这是两种对立事物进行的一次友好对话,是来自远古和现代两个不同时代之间的愉 快的交锋,也是古代最崇高神圣的建筑遗迹与现代典型住宅建筑所在的两种时空的汇合。由此我们意识到它们依然充满着生机与活力,依然享受着作为罗马建筑的特权地位。

The fixtures have been fitted in a clean streamlined way, so that the strongest possible contrast is set up between these objects of modern living and what remains of the ancient world now accommodating them: sections of original floor tiles have been left untouched but surrounded by new materials, while there are new steel structures for the lintels, the pillars and stairs – all of these elements now permanently marking out a new layer in the historic sedimentation. It’s a friendly conversation between opposites, a happy confrontation between different eras, from the most remote to the most modern. It’s also a meeting between two worlds, between the traces of the noblest and most sacred architectural monuments of Antiquity and these model domestic buildings that remind us that they are still alive and vibrant; that they are buildings in Rome that mean to fully enjoy their privileged position.

The bi-level rooftop restaurant, with its amazing panoramic views, is proof of this day and night: it’s a perfect viewing instrument. And the other exceptional thing about it is its capacity to finely frame all that lies before it – the ruins and umbrella pines in the foreground and, in the distance, the skyline of hills and Roman domes – just like a cyclorama.
