Façade construction specialist seele has installed a 42m long glass roof at Place Ville Marie in Montréal according to the designs of Sid Lee Architecture and Menkès Shooner Dagenais Létourneux Architectes. The roof is made up of just 18 insulating glass units. “Grand Hall” is seele’s fourth project in Canada.
The refurbishment of the Place Ville Marie called for a new entrance pavilion for the mall consisting of an approx. 630sqm glass roof and canopies cantilevering up to 4.2m. The all-glass structure enables an uninterrupted view of the shopping area below. Large-format glazing units create a feeling of transparency and spaciousness and thus make this an appealing central venue. This exceptional, one-off project enabled seele to demonstrate once again it’s all-round structural glass skills – from design to construction.
