LAMINAM_ITALY CLADS THE EXTERNAL FAÇADES OF THE OLYMPIC VILLAGE IN BEIJING_CHINA
20,000 square metres of Laminam ceramic surfaces cover the exterior of the Village built for athletes from all over the world. Large slabs of Laminam 3+ thickness defy gravity with their lightness; the Oxide Moro texture with its three-dimensional metallic effect conveys an urban yet refined style.
South of the National Olympic Sports Centre, the Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Village, home for 53 days to the athletes who have come to the Chinese capital to compete in the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, is the result of the complete renovation of a former steel mill in the heart of Beijing’s industrial district and consists of 50 buildings serving different purposes. Set apart from the rest of the city, this is also where the athletes will spend their valuable time before and after the competitions, immersed in the almost mysterious atmosphere of an architectural complex that conveys to viewers the character of those living there: solemnity, intensity, and exclusivity. The majestic ceramic-clad façades, whose rhythm is punctuated by large windows, welcome visitors with the signature Made in Italy design of Laminam. These include the external façades of the building reserved for the Organizing Committee headquarters and the structure where the BIG AIR, freestyle ski and snowboarding competitions will be held.
