After twenty years, in the center of Rome, the children's department of the historic clothing brand Davide Cenci has reopened. The project by Alvisi Kirimoto + Partners combines minimalist forms with ancient Roman capitals and columns to host, in a very playful environment, a children's clothing store. Since 1926, Davide Cenci has been a leading reference for clothing in Rome, Italy. A branch for children reopens separately from the main store on via Campo Marzio. The new store Davide Cenci Junior, designed by the architecture studio of Alvisi Kirimoto + Partners, is located in the square where once in ancient times the Temple of Mars used to stand. In homage to the past, a lone Ionic column remains at the entrance, whilst within the store are scattered a series of ruins. The past and the future find true symbiosis in a unique design intended to engage a child's imagination.
