The U.S. Embassy compound in Rome is housed in seven magnificent buildings, including the former Queen’s Palace. The oldest structure, the Piombino Wing, was constructed several hundred years ago. Preserving the character of this historic treasure is of critical importance to the Department of State as well as to the host nation.
EYP has completed numerous projects to continuously and meticulously upgrade the landmark compound to accommodate state-of-the-art building systems, security, and technology without sacrificing the buildings’ historic character. Architectural restoration, full electrical and mechanical systems upgrades, and a complete perimeter security upgrade – including annexation of the neighboring compound with the original embassy into one unified compound – has enhanced security, functionality, and accessibility. All work was performed on a fully functioning and highly visible compound.
