The Tesa 105 conversion project was named the winner of the Arsenale di Venezia Spa International Design Competition. This competion convened in 2006 for the realization of a new intervention to recover, reuse and give value to the Venice Arsenalle. The reuse Program has as its main objective the conversion of an obsolete XVI century historic structure. This will be done by adding a new building capable of generating livelihood to the existing structure. The approach taken for the project is to add a new contemporary architecture to the interior of the existing structure, generating a connection between the two. The original building, a 16th century industrial hangar, is structurally stable on the outside. The new project will be contained within that structure, without any visibility from the outside.
