House of the Wooden Partition is one of the best preserved residences in Herculaneum, both on the outside as well as inside. It was constructed in the late Republican period in the first century BC and later remodelled in the first century AD.
Well preserved Wooden Partition in the middle of the room is the reason why the insula got its name. It consists of several panels with two central panels were hinged with bronze handles. Thus it could be opened by the owners of the building. The floor of the house was covered by mosaics and walls were covered in plaster and intricate frescoes with many ornaments.
