Archaeological Park Emona House

Studio Stratum, Arco d.o.o. / 2012

The archaeological park was designed in a way that suits the needs of both individual visitors and guided groups. A visitor’s path from the entrance plateau leads through the main access path that does not resemble the former Roman paths, their materiality and appearance. The path leads to the mosaic area and connects it with the part of the house on the other side of the embankment. Marking elements – totems and benches – are placed in front of important archaeological points. For the needs of educational workshops, in the north-east corner there is an archaeology sandbox. To protect the mosaics and the hippocampus against meteoric water and UV radiation a canvas was placed over them in a form that does not resemble the roof of the former Roman house.
