When it comes to wood buildings, most designs are quite straightforward, but MoDus Architects has decided to push the boundaries that little bit further.

The team has wrapped the headquarters of the Damiani Holz & Ko office in Italy with a finned wood, which gives the building an engaging dynamic. As DesignBoom states, "the waving louvers function to shade the structure’s envelope, containing many windows, and include breaks in their geometry for pronounced views." This way, those workers inside will be able to have access to look at the surroundings, even if from the outside it appears as if the entire building is covered in these wood finned materials.

Compared to the buildings nearby, this headquarters by MoDus Architects certainly stands out.
