Here, where Roman history was born, Jean Nouvel imagined the apartments as a completely innovative place: designing them not as living spaces in the traditional sense but constituting "openable" areas, steel boxes that reproduce environments and services such as kitchens, bathrooms or cabinets, designed and patented only for the rhinoceros building, whose refined modernity stands in stark contrast to the walls.
Respecting the stratifications of history and in an attempt to transmit the past views, Jean Nouvel has covered all the windows with panels depicting the spaces before the renovation work.
The passage of time, Roman history, modernity and a never-ending construction are the spirit of the "The Rooms of Rome" apartments.
