The House of Families




Jubilee 2025 S.p.A.


2023 - 2024

PFTE and PE: Urban regeneration with demolition and reconstruction of a building to be used as a new reception center for the Jubilee 2025 project on an area of 4,000 square meters for the municipality of Rome

Participation in the working group: Kami study



The main purpose of the intervention is to provide a response to emergency situations for families under eviction, mothers with children and separated fathers in disadvantaged conditions, through a facility designed for collective activities and hospitality that can simultaneously provide privacy and organizational flexibility.

Temporary housing and support will be offered until critical emergency-related issues are resolved.

The intervention aims to create new places for psycho-physical regeneration and support, with the intention of promoting social inclusion, solidarity, with the purpose of integration into the social and territorial fabric.


The architectural and plant solutions adopted are aimed at containing energy consumption, construction and operating costs as much as possible, aiming at energy saving and ensuring thermo-hygrometric and acoustic comfort, including the principle of waste prevention, as well as the safety of the work against natural and man-made hazards and functional safety.

In addition to the area to be allocated for parking and nonequipped public green space, the areas to be allocated for equipped green space having the following functions stand out in importance:

  • Playground and multipurpose area;
  • Children’s area;
  • Dog Area.


The planned pavements were selected to allow proper stormwater runoff: draining concrete for the driveway areas and stabilized soil for the pedestrian paths.

The remaining rainwater, also coming from the roof, will be conveyed through a separate drainage system, into the appropriate underground collection tank, to be then filtered, de-oiled and reused for irrigation of the green areas.

The planimetric positioning of the center was the starting point for carrying out a bioclimatic study of the area and arranging the interior spaces in the best possible way.

The north-facing area was in fact occupied by the service rooms, the south-facing area by the most occupied rooms. Instead, the south and west facing areas will house housing.


The courtyard shape allows optimal subdivision of different functional areas, always ensuring the security and privacy of users; the central block is useful for distributing vertical connections.

The ground floor contains multipurpose indoor and outdoor spaces that can be used by citizens and city hall (meetings and cultural events).

The west wing contains a community and socializing area, as well as offices and rooms for the center’s operators.

The east wing, on the other hand, will be used for the cafeteria, dining spaces, with their attached service rooms, and the laundry room.

The perimeter walls, on the first floor, are emptied to make way for large windows that allow for a strong connection to the outdoor green spaces and, above all, allow for maximum use of natural lighting.


The second floor is intended for housing for up to nine households. Sleeping rooms arranged according to the user are provided.

West and East wings are both occupied by family housing and services dedicated to them.

The area in which the sleeping area will be distributed will be exactly similar to the lower area; there are, however, balconies beyond the perimeter of the lower floor projection that, although small in size, ensure a private outdoor space usable by users.

The balconies will be protected by a system of wooden sunshade panels covering the first floor and partly the roof of the building.

A system of sunshade panels is planned to protect the facades.

Modular panels consisting of composite wood slats will be anchored on the metal base structure, planned for the second floor; the positioning was determined following the study of the solar path on the building throughout the year.

The facade, on the ground floor, due to the shading received from the upper panels, can be left uncovered

The project involves LEED certification.
