Crepuscular Green
Mondrian Suite




Crepuscular Green is an interior refurbishment of a Roman art gallery. The use of colour and texture is inspired by the opening scene of Richard Wagner’s ‘Das Rheingold’, which describes a greenish dawn as seen from the depths of the river.

This work was made on a low budget with one builder. The poverty of means applied here relates to the idea of architecture being a faculty to transcend the ordinary.

Like a green golden grotto, a rusticated vault envelopes the upper part of the room, rendering a trilithon schema on the backdrop. Ahead, a rounded altar features a mirror arched bridge and a suspended slab above. On either side, two black flutes emit diffused lighting. Everything is painted in shades of green. Words of the space relate to each other a cohesive narrative, which aims to unfold the imagination of the inhabitants.
