For your viewing pleasure: the San Saba neighborhood in Rome. Built as affordable housing, this neighborhood on the Aventine is one of the world’s greatest examples of a place, imbued with pride via humble materials and creative detailing. Using the most human and humane (read: civilizing or refining) building material ever invented – the brick – endless depth and variation was created, providing massive inspiration to us! We hope to you as well!
