01 product description
The project builds on all of the inherent qualities of DuPont™ Corian® for outdoor applications: it is smooth, non-porous, resistant to weathering and graffiti, has a good UV resistance and provides edges that have the same colour as the faces and joints between each panel. The translucency of DuPont™ Corian® can also be exploited beautifully in exterior applications.
Cool, clean DuPont™ Corian® Glacier White was the obvious choice to highlight the subtle sculptural look of the building, with its lines, planes and angles, its repeated openings, its interplay of shadow and light. Inside, the spacious bedrooms offer a view over the Garonne.
Seeko'o means “iceberg” or “glacier” in Inuit.
