After taking the step into the tourism sector in 2005 in collaboration with Four Seasons, the Astay company is now bringing its successful partnerships and experience to the Turkish Riviera. The Four Seasons Resort in Bodrum is being built on a site measuring 1 million square metres, on a cliff overlooking the sea. Jansen is supplying the site with VISS pivoting doors and Janisol HI doors.
Four Seasons Hotel Bodrum, Turkey
Hotel Le Calvet Bordeaux, France
The renovation and reconstruction of this hotel complex includes the use of Janisol and Janisol Arte window systems, as well as the VISS façade system. It has been planned entirely in BIM, with the interior architecture designed by renowned designer Philippe Starck.
Bundesbank Dortmund, Germany
The new branch of the Bundesbank is being built on the site of a former barracks. The site has 79,000 square metres of floor space and the new building will have 290,000 cubic metres of enclosed space. It will be used for verifying, sorting, cleaning and packing coins and bank notes before putting them back into circulation. The security requirements are strict as you might expect, although the bank wishes not to disclose the exact structure of the building, nor may we disclose exactly which Jansen profile systems will be implemented.
Teatro Albéniz Madrid, Spain
This iconic cultural site will soon be shining with new splendour, with a new hotel set to be opened at the venue in autumn 2021. The new building makes use of Janisol Arte 2.0, Janisol and Janisol C4.
Leerfabriek KVL Oisterwijk, Netherlands
The disused former KVL leather factory in Oisterwijk is being transformed into a trendy leisure and shopping centre to serve the city and surrounding area. Around 60 companies will be located at the site. Of all the buildings in what was once Europe’s biggest leather factory, two will be given new uses. Janisol HI doors, Janisol C4, Janisol 2, Art’15 and Economy 50 EW30 are to be installed within the existing structure.
BNP Paribas Paris, France
On the fashionable Boulevard des Italiens in the French capital, the headquarters of the major bank BNP Paribas is in the process of renovation. The new building will make use of Janisol Arte 2.0 dry glazing.
Sluishuis, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Right where the city meets the sea, Amsterdam is now home to a new housing development known as the Sluishuis (or ‘Lock House’) – a large, courtyard-style apartment complex brings a whole new meaning to the idea of waterside living. It appears to float on the water, rising up towards the sea like the open bow of a ship. The block descends towards the neighbouring district in a cascade of landscaped terraces, creating a natural transition to its small-scale surroundings. A promenade snakes its way around the building and out towards the water, offering a range of public facilities. It also extends right up to the top of the building, where it serves as a viewing platform over Lake Ljssel.
The Sluishuis offers a mixture of freehold and rental apartments in a range of different sizes. What makes the building particularly special is the combination of sloped and straight glass panels, each measuring 1360 x 3120 millimetres and forming an integral part of each apartment – functioning as a base plate, among other things. Never before has a glass panel for façades received fire resistance certification in this position. Once again, Jansen’s product stepped up to the plate, providing EI90 fire-proofing.
