Considered one of the slenderest buildings in Brazil, the Copenhagen Building in Balneário Camboriú conveys elegance and modernity with its 173 meters high on the seafront.

Combining sophistication and technology, it is the ideal place for you to share the best moments. With a contemporary design, it stands out from the entrance, with a work in the form of a monolith, paying homage to two astronomers who made history in 1970.

Cechinel's Copenhagen Building offers spacious apartments with high-quality details. The apartments have more than 236m² of private space with a high standard of finishing, including 4 suites, integrated living room, kitchen, balcony and 4 parking spaces and beautiful views of the sea.

Dekton Uyuni: versatility and durability

The building is completely covered with ready-made facade systems with glass and ACM, ventilated using ACM (copper) and Dekton Uyuni (front basement).

The choice of Dekton as the facade material was defined due to the versatility of the material, which allowed the execution of large plans, needs that the architectural project required to enhance the polished shape of the base. The durability and easy maintenance of the product also influenced the choice, not just thinking about creating something beautiful, but because it is functional and lasts for a long time.

The color was also due to the shape and the application by the sea. Bringing beauty, lightness and durability. Dekton® is resistant to salt spray, sun, rain and wind, it is easy to apply due to its light weight, in addition to the size of the sheets, which made it easy to fit onto the sides of the facade, achieving a "cut" appearance.

Volumetric façade

The façade is very interesting from a constructive point of view, highlighting both its cutting and volumetrics. To achieve the fascinating interplay of broken planes and angles, a chemical anchoring system (DKC) was used on a framework of metal profiles.

This gluing system includes a range of cleaning and priming products to ensure proper adhesion of the double-sided tape and adhesive line to both the Dekton panel and the supporting profile. It is imperative that the system is comprehensive, validated by the supplier and applied by qualified fitters in strict accordance with the product application guide.
