Museum for a Roman Villa

Pully, Switzerland 2017

Client: Ville de Pully Competition, third prize

The volume of the proposed new Roman Museum in Pully engages positively with the town hall and seeks clearly to define the site as the centre of the town. The proposed new museum has a cubic volume, with façades that recall the figural proportions of the elegant Roman villa that once commanded the site. The volume of the museum faces westwards in a confident way, creating a central square in front of the town hall and operating as a fulcrum between the existing vineyards and the proposed new Roman garden to the east of the site.
