About This Project

Renovated into a boutique concept store in 2008, Chanel desired a lasting clean appearance for their brand.  After eight years, the 7,200 sq ft facade retains it's clean, natural white appearance free of environmental staining from air pollutants and traffic.
Challenges Project required a maintenance-free, clean, appearance in a high traffic environment without disruption to the customer experience with repaints or stucco maintenance for the duration of the lease.
Solutions The exterior stucco was resurfaced with KEIM Universalputz Render reinforced with KEIM's woven Glass Fiber Mesh to ensure a crack-free surface for the life of the facade.  The Render was treated with KEIM Lime Remover and two coats of KEIM Royalan extreme weather mineral silicate finish in titanium white.
