Innovative materials for out-of-the-box architectural solutions

Beyond steel, aluminium, glass

Our Research & Engineering team is constantly engaged in the development of unconventional practices regarding the use of alternative materials with which to create unique façade elements, able to meet the most ambitious demands of our stakeholders.


Live material used in the construction world has functions that reflect its natural properties: resistance to bending of the wind and capacity to carry concentrated loads even with a reduced specific weight. But what is most important for us is the low consumption of carbon dioxide throughout the life cycle of this element.
At Simeon we have developed continuous wooden façades made with different prefabrication technologies to ensure the best quality of construction. An example is the wall à ossatur bois made for Arboretum in Paris, a contract that represents one of the largest real estate investments in Europe for a building with low CO2 emissions.


By nature Marble is a heavy material, so the challenge is being able to give a robust lightness to complex architectural envelopes.
At Simeon we are able to do this thanks to special layering technologies inside the glass, to give a distinctive and unique mark, for an iconic signature of the most avant-garde architects.
In façades, we use of a fragile material inside a tensile-structural façade with strong deformations.


Ceramics and terracotta have always represented simple materials that have characterised human history for their mechanical and thermal resistance as well as the quality of their surfaces.
Simeon uses ceramics in an original way to create precious envelope shapes characterised by original light effects.
The implementation of this material requires in-depth performance tests for its constructive use, which we are able to carry out in our centre authorized to carry out these SIMLAB tests.


The use of concrete materials in contemporary architecture represents an architectural trend because it allows new, material and light shapes.
Simeon engineers these shapes by integrating them with glass envelopes, with a strong focus on structural interactions and deformability, all studied with three-dimensional FEM (Finit element models) systems.
Making very thin layers and integrating them with fiberglass towards a PER FPRMA structural analysis, lightening heavy materials to be lightened.
