The GEMA building – also known as the Benois Building – is located in what is now the Kalininski District of St. Petersburg. It is the result of the redevelopment of a former four-story industrial building.
The substructure of the entire glass front consists of an aluminium pillar waling construction. The one-story high, black and color printed glass alternates with the transparent elements. This result in a lively façade which, on the one hand, takes up the cultural aspects with its colorful themes and, on the other hand, attracts the attention of the observer. The abstract façade design of the rear of the building is in sharp contrast to these traditional elements. It has only four different shades of grey in pixel quality. The entire glass was printed with the OKACOLOR procedure from OKALUX. This digital printing procedure guarantees a photographically realistic reproduction with a high color brilliance and is therefore especially suited for the printing of colorful theater figures.
