VIA S. CRESCENZIANO APARTMENT HOUSE

PALAZZINA DI VIA S. CRESCENZIANO


1952 Vincenzo Monaco (1911/69) and Amedeo Luccichenti (1907/63)

Built on a far higher level than Via Salaria running below

Daring balconies protrude significantly from the plane of the fa├žade that looks out on Villa Ada

“The layout of the building is not that of a classical building, but rather that of a two-family home with two apartments per floor and with the body of the stairs projecting outward. In the planimetric configuration it seems evident the reference to the Swiss Pavilion designed by Le Corbusier in 1930 in the University City in Paris as well as very Le Corbusier-like appear the overall formal solution, set on the dialectic between elements in orthogonal geometry and curvilinear ones” (Piero Ostilio Rossi)
