Jamie Fobert Architects - T Fondaco Dei Tedeschi by Olivier Hess

Once again Olivier was given the chance to work with the London based architect Jamie Fobert and his fantastic team. The brief was to build an image archive and document their recently finished retail experience for the new DFS department store Fondaco dei Tedeschi in Venice.

Olivier's highlight of the production in the 13th-century palazzo was to take the striking red escalators up the different levels. Unfortunately they were shut down for the night, which was a shame as carrying photographic gear from one to the next location suddenly was not much fun anymore…
