Scuola Italo Calvino, Firenze (FI), Italy

The Italo Calvino primary school in Florence is an excellent example of the intrinsic qualities of a cross-laminated timber construction dry-lined with Gypsum Fibreboard. This is an energy-efficient building since it uses sustainable materials and, rather importantly, helps the contractor adhere to the construction schedule.
