Fondaco dei Tedeschi in Venice, the historic palace facing the Grand Canal with a splendid view of the Rialto Bridge, begins a new life as a shopping facility thanks to the restoration designed by the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas with interior design by the English architect Jamie Fobert, who for the Beauty area has chosen precious marble by Margraf.


After the previous collaboration with Margraf for the restoration of the historic Burlington Arcade in London, Jamie Fobert has approached this exclusive project by selecting 700 m2 of Margraf Bianco Laser marble, cut to size for all the floors in the Beauty area on the third floor.

The bases and pillars in the facility are in Fior di Pesco Carnico (a marble for which the company has the world’s only quarry).

Finally, Margraf has also supplied 200 m2 of antique-finish blocks of Fior di Pesco Carnico for the restoration of the original floors on the ground level.
