The Sustainable Building Project for the British School at Rome pursues the goal to improve the energy performance of the complex with the aim to reduce its management cost.
Cities: ROME
Countries: ITALY
Engineering: ARUP ITALIA
Inaugurazione: 2016
The project also intends to improve the comfort of the School's residents and guests and to add a series of works for the general improvement of the building. 
The project provides notably for: the renovation and improvement of the roof; the restoration and overhaul of the windows, intended to comply to the required new energy standards whilst avoiding to alter their original design; the replacement of the skylights of the artists' Studios with new, better performing ones; a series of works on the architecture and systems of the books archive, aimed at solving the problems caused by the humidity; the introduction of solutions intended to improve the efficiency of the electric and mechanical systems; the use of renewable energy sources. 
The works will harmonize with the historic-architectural quality of the complex, designed at the beginning of the 20th century by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
