“Freespace” is the title of the 2018 architecture biennale in Venice, curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara of Grafton Architects.

Taking place until 25 November, art lovers and architecture enthusiasts who are keen to visit this incredible biannual event and would like to do in style, can find a heavenly place right in the Venetian lagoon – on the private island of San Clemente Palace Kempinski Venice.

Just a mere ten-minute boat ride from Piazza San Marco and minutes away from the arty action, the five-star deluxe hotel offers a Biennale Package not to be missed.

With the theme of “Freespace”, the Biennale Architettura 2018 presents for public scrutiny examples, proposals and elements – built or unbuilt – of work that exemplifies essential qualities of architecture. These include the modulation, richness and materiality of surface; and the orchestration and sequencing of movement, revealing the embodied power and beauty of architecture.

After a long day of exploring in the “Giardini” and the “Arsenale”, guests may fully relax when getting back to the lush gardens on the private island of San Clemente and rest their weary feet by indulging in the gastronomical variety the five-star hotel has to offer.

Perched on its very own private island in the heart of the Venetian lagoon, the property is immersed in a centenary park with the historic church of San Clemente – a reminiscence of the monastery that the island has hosted for centuries. With 190 rooms, including 61 suites, the five-star hotel offers beautiful views across the lagoon, as well as scenery of  the historic courtyards and the lush gardens.

The Biennale Package at San Clemente Palace Kempinski is available with a minimum stay of three nights, and includes a sumptuous breakfast buffet and two entrance tickets to the International Biennale Exhibition valid for one access to each of the Biennale venues. The cultural package also features a three-course dinner at the La Dolce restaurant, which is located in the centuries-old park next to the outdoor swimming pool and serves fresh and seasonal cuisine, with a choice of some traditional Venetian dishes.

The International Biennale Package starts with a nightly rate from EUR 465. Find out more and make a booking here.
