Ca' d'Ombra / The Forest of Venice
To build in wood is the sustainable way to build and our contribution to the visionary collaboration The Forests of Venice is a transformation of the traditional Palazzo into a contemporary public building in wood – a social library.
With inspiration from a selection of Venetian Palazzos from different periods in time we have developed a structural principle for our palace that creates a similarly interesting spatial experience – in massive wood.
