Camping Village Vela Blu


The concept

Architect Maris Valenti Alberto Salvadori – Quiet Architecture (TV)

Nestled in the beautiful pine wood on the Veneto coast, the new tourist homes of the Camping Village Vela Blu perfectly mirror the client’s requests. The infrastructures were built using sustainable processes and respected the surrounding environment.

This small plot is under strict legislative restrictions. The project leveraged its limitations and transformed them into shapes, spaces, and surfaces within the prescribed area to create a spacious community park for adults and children. Each unit was built considering the specific needs of a coastal environment. The spacious porch and large patio are ideal for a life lived outside, while the open plan living and dining room, two bedrooms, and a bathroom are fitted with all modern creature comforts. All indoor spaces face one side to guarantee privacy despite the closeness of the units. The wide, front wooden doors set the scene for the entire unit and emphasise its sloping ceiling which increases the indoor space. It’s in constant dialogue with the surrounding area thanks to the generous windows which favour that sense of the great outdoors even from the comfort of your couch. Traditional materials, such as the wooden linings and the roof’s bricks complete the wooden prefab built using “framework” technology. Every cluster is fitted with photovoltaic and solar-thermal panels, and also features a rainwater collection and recycling system which powers irrigation and fire alarm systems. The Vela Blu is therefore up-to-date when it comes to the latest sustainable technologies.
