In the majestic Palazzo Rhinoceros, a historic building designed, restored and furnished by Jean Nouvel, seven apartments are available for rent, each with a unique concept of residing and living pervaded by the art. The palace, nestled between the Arch of Janus and the Palatine Hill, stands out on the skyline of Rome and houses along its six floors in addition to prestigious residences also exhibition spaces and an art gallery with a restaurant and terraces that enjoy spectacular views over the capital. At night the Arch of Janus is divinely illuminated thanks to the project of the Oscar winner Vittorio Storaro, commissioned by the Alda Fendi - Experiments Foundation. Each apartment is identified by the word "thought" translated in different languages and by a haiku poem by Raffaele Curi engraved on the doors.

On the third floor, with views that plunge from the temples of Hercules and Portunus, pass through the Arch of Janus and San Giorgio al Velabro up to the Vittoriano and Piazza Venezia, the TENKTE apartment ("thought" in the Norwegian language) is about 70 square meters and has a living room, double bedroom, kitchen and bathroom with shower. In the bedroom, a long and narrow window-opening was strongly desired by Jean Nouvel to grant a view of the Palatine Hill. The exposed wooden beams frame a design that enhances the historical heritage preserved in the urban redevelopment, with the patinas of the walls revealing the different layers of painting and installation of artistic panels that portray the rooms themselves before the renovation, a trompe-l'oeuil able to capture natural light as a spotlight. The contemporary furnishings, home automation and the bathroom housed in a monumental stainless steel are highly suggestive, exploiting the contrast with a residence recalling the history of the Eternal City.

“povera ingenuità
di quella sera
per l’afa tutti
caddero nudi
ad aspettare la pioggia”

Guests will experience an “art safari” with the exhibitions and installations of the artists present on every floor of the building invading spaces, stairs and shafts, and will enjoy the incredible panorama on the last two levels pertaining to the art gallery restaurant, Entr'Acte - Le Restau de la Galerie, with spectacular views over Ancient and Baroque Rome. The monthly condo fees include a flat-rate cost for all utilities and for a cleaning service and linen change every two weeks.
