THE LEO, FRANKFURT
Cladding The Leo in GRC
Close to the exhibition centre of Frankfurt, a unique ‘green’ building has been constructed – the LEO.
Formerly known as Poseidon House, the complex consisted of two rows of buildings facing each other.
"The building has been listed at Grade II due to its strong stylistic and functional affinities with the Victorian commercial architecture of Queen Victoria Street." English Heritage.
The site has now been refurbished into office and administration buildings.
Glassfibre reinforced concrete (GRC) cladding has been used for the façades, replacing the original aluminium panels.
