Since leaving the Vatican in February, ex Pope – Benedict XVI lives in Castello Gandolfo, located 30 km away from Rome. For his spiritual retreat, 1week1project proposes a house sitting on a roof close to Piazza Della Rotonda. Reinterpreting the halo’s symbolic shape, the dwelling is organized around an atrium and offers a 360° view.
