Biella Italy, ecological wood enclosure for office building
chronology: 2011 definitive project, 2011 construction documents, 2012 realized
Project of transformation of an industrial building for office use. The wooden covering of Canadian red cedar was mounted on stainless steel and galvanized steel structures, leaving one meter space between the facade and the wooden covering.
The boards are 3 meters long and function as a filter for the sun. The colour of the building is in harmony with the surrounding Alps which form the background in the distance.
