Living in a prime location: the “Westspitze” residential and commercial building in Tübingen is located directly on the blue bridge that connects Tübingen’s Südstadt with the city centre and the historic city centre. On the trapezoidal plot, a former freight station site, a complex has been created that cleverly combines living, working and shopping and stands for a sustainable neighbourhood concept with short distances.

The residents of the 106 “Westspitze” apartments can shop directly on the ground floor, where, among other facilities, a discount store is rented. The complex has 6 one-room apartments as well as two-room to five-room apartments, all of which have balconies, terraces or roof terraces, parquet flooring and underfloor heating.

The partly floor-to-ceiling windows of GEALAN system S 9000 in GEALAN-acrylcolor® quartz grey let in plenty of light. The apartments are oriented towards a centrally located residential courtyard, which is a new meeting place in the neighbourhood.

Paradise with pool: Villa Kambel in Croatia

Paradise with pool and privacy: Villa Kambel is located on the Adriatic coast of Dalmatia, only fifty metres from the sea. This is a holiday home in a class of its own with three floors, its own heated pool, loggia, roof terrace with Jacuzzi and bar and three bedrooms with a fantastic panoramic view over the azure sea of the Adriatic and the islands off the Dalmatian coast.


Vilnius University Hospital SANTAROS KLINIKOS / Lithuania

Warm wine red: this colour is an integral part of the appearance of the SANTAROS KLINIKOS University Hospital in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius. The distinctive, dark red adorns the logo, website and façade – and of course the window profiles had to bear exactly this colour.


Residential Complex Plauen / Germany

Company beats solitude: this is the idea behind this residential complex in Plauen. 23 modern apartments were built on a park-like plot in Plauen’s Westend district. With 70 to 150 square metres, they are generously proportioned, have south-facing balconies and are architecturally sophisticated in every detail – plus the GEALAN system S 9000 windows in GEALAN-acrylcolor® silver match.
