In one of the most important location of the industrial archeology of the city of Rome, the historic atelier where the renowed painter Piero Pizzi Cannella created some of its most import artworks in the last decades, will become a new space for living, working and cultural events. A simple volume, in white corrugated sheet, houses the services; subdividing the space in 4 main areas: an entrance gallery, the bedroom, the kitchen and an immense living room. The south-east facade works with 4 big sliding frames, leaving an high band for ventilation through vasistas openings. Ceiling and reinforced concrete structures are deliberately crude as the steel structures of the loft with bolts and welds in evidence. On the floor giant planks with the wavy effect typical of antique wooden floors alternate concrete effect tiles in the kitchen area and large slabs for the bathrooms. The air conditioning is entrusted to visible pipes for cooling and to a radiant floor heating system.

Il loft è a Roma, in via Arimondi 3, zona Portonaccio, all’interno di un ex deposito industriale. Colonizzato e frequentato da artisti e creativi si è trasformato nel tempo in una vera e propria factory culturale. Situato all’ultimo piano dell’edificio, è stato per anni l’atelier del noto artista Piero Pizzi Cannella.


Oggi il loft di Luisa Melara è sede permanente dell’Art_City_Lab Arimondi Circle, una casa, una galleria d’arte ed un punto di aggregazione, uno spazio in continua evoluzione ed un luogo di sperimentazione architettonica, dell‘arte e del design. Privo di qualsiasi elemento decorativo il loft conserva senza formalismi il carattere industriale e lo spirito dello studio d’artista.
