SESC - Serviço Social do Comércio is a private entity managed by business, tourism and services entrepreneurs, which provides welfare and quality of life to workers and their families in this sector. SESC has a network of 39 centres in São Paulo - for culture, sports, health, and food.
This heritage forms an architectural complex combining multiple languages and influences, designed with the participation of names like Lina Bo Bardi, planner of Sesc Pompeia, and Paulo Mendes de la Roca, responsible for Sesc 24 de Maio.
In 2009, Lilian Dal Pian and Renato Dal Pian directors of Dal Pian Arquitetos Associados architectural studio won the project contract to develop a building for the center of the city of Guarulhos.
Ventilated Facade: Playing with Volumetrics
The architects designed the theatre's facade using ULMA's ventilated facade system. Thanks to the manner of installation of the polymer concrete panels, a set of shapes and volumes on the building's skin create shadows and geometric shapes that set the project apart.
The facade was made in a custom color and texture exclusively for the project using ULMA's Shield Plus® technology.
The project is expected to be completed in the beginning of 2019, but almost 100% of the ventilated facade has already been installed. The fact that the panels in the ULMA system are so easy to install helps to meet the work deadlines.
