The POHL Facade Division is an owner managed international specialist for metal facades. They combine premium metals such as aluminum, stainless steel, zinc and brass with individual surfaces for one-of-a-kind building envelopes – individually or with a modular system.
There are no limits to creativity in the development of architectural ideas. Their strength lies in translating these visions into real facade solutions. With the required know-how and an extensive machine park, POHL is able to solve any problem with productive manufacturing proposals.

Please note that all heights shown in italics/red are estimated heights. These have been calculated based on known floor counts for the building, then extrapolated through analyzing typically hundreds of buildings of the same function on this database that do have confirmed heights. The user should be aware that non-standard building features, such as significant spires or raised entrances / podiums, may affect the accuracy of these estimations.
