OMA restore the Fondaco dei Tedeschi building in Venice

OMA renovate Venice's historic Fondaco dei Tedeschi building into a spectacular contemporary urban department store.

The design, both subtle and ambitious, continues the Fondaco’s tradition of vitality and adaptation, its preservation yet another chapter of the building’s illustrious and multi-layered history. It avoids nostalgic reconstructions of the past and it demystifies the ‘sacred’ image of a historical building.

The project was led by Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, Rem Koolhaas and Silvia Sandor.
