Ger­man façade spe­cial­ist seele in Asia

EME Outlook - - Dp Façade - E [email protected]

Founded in 1984 in Ger­many, seele has been re­al­is­ing com­plex build­ing en­velopes all over the world. Al­ready the be­gin­ning of seele’s pres­ence in Asia, around 20 years ago, was marked by pres­ti­gious projects like the Shang­hai Grand The­atre and the Chek Lap Kok Air­port in Hong Kong.

Seele has es­tab­lished it­self as the ex­pert when it comes to turn­ing bold façade con­cepts into re­al­ity: Spec­tac­u­lar de­signs such as the Ap­ple Store in Sin­ga­pore or the Chad­stone Shop­ping Cen­tre in Mel­bourne rep­re­sent the per­fect re­al­i­sa­tion of the most ex­clu­sive ar­chi­tec­ture.

The ut­most com­plex all-glass de­sign on the lux­ury façades of the ICONSIAM shop­ping mall in Bangkok (open­ing fall 2018) fas­ci­nates with three- di­men­sion­ally ar­ranged large glass for­mats up to 16 me­tres in a sin­gle piece. With this project, seele is set­ting the cur­rent tech­ni­cal bench­mark for the use of glass as a struc­tural el­e­ment not only in Asia but glob­ally.

Nowa­days, there are two per­ma­nent seele sub­sidiaries, one in Hong Kong look­ing af­ter the sales and op­er­a­tions in the North Asian mar­kets and a sec­ond one in Sin­ga­pore serv­ing South­east Asia and Aus­tralia.

Seele is proud hav­ing co­op­er­ated with DP Ar­chi­tects on one of the most in­tri­cate projects in Sin­ga­pore. About DP Façade, an in­te­gral part of DP ar­chi­tects, An­dreas Geyer, Manag­ing Di­rec­tor of seele Sin­ga­pore says “it’s al­ways a plea­sure to dis­cuss and de­velop so­lu­tions with DP Façade for ar­chi­tec­tural vi­sions that are chal­leng­ing far be­yond con­ven­tional tech­niques and meth­ods. We both - DP Façade and seele – share the pas­sion for cre­at­ing last­ing value”.
