The interventions were aimed at increasing the number of available places for non-resident students of the universities of Naples with temporary housing solutions for quality and affordable and improve the impact of the context in which the building is located. The existing building is part of a strong man-made fabric that is one of Naples' historic center, a UNESCO heritage site, and is involved in a vast project valorisation of monumental public and private (one with a more balanced distribution of services) in order to promote the improvement of the environmental and social quality of urban space.

In this paper the topic of historic restoration and transformation in contemporary weave a close dialogue based on the clear distinction between pre-existing historical and new intervention, where the latter minimizes any intention of form and comparison with the architectural features of the building.

The project involved the renovation of the roof, partly insulated, and a series of interventions in the façade: plaster reconstruction, cleaning and consolidation of the frames of windows, string courses, cornices and eaves of each piece of stone, cleaning, painting and replacement of parts in iron and wooden shutters. It was also reviewed various fronts and the lighting of the garden as a result of a lighting project that, with the other work described above, have led to the overall redevelopment of the property.
