“Glenn Sestig, born in 1968 in Ghent, Belgium, graduated from the Henri Van De Velde institute in Antwerp and in 1999 established his practice. From the outset, his work focused on extreme precision, on a construction with such mastery of the architectural line, proportions and perspective that it is easy to forget the careful consideration that will have gone into his design and creation. In addition to the material and its interpretation, transparency and the play of reflection suggest rather than illustrate the endeavors that have resulted in the real grandeur of some projects, primarily places for public use.
Glenn Sestig Architects is synonymous with contemporary elegance. Their work can be seen as monolithic and intuitive but always with a strong refined architectural identity. The cohesion or even clash between different exclusive and unique materials elevates this identity. Therefore the architect uses his own method of calculation, a sort of mental model from which flow the intelligence, equilibrium and soul of a place. Each completed work is considered as a minor work of art wherein art, fashion and music are essential sources of inspiration. The architecture is no longer a movement in time but becomes a declaration of a clear architectural vocabulary.
With regular publications in renowned magazines and recognition in global architectural awards Glenn Sestig has earned his place as one of the most noticeable architects out there.
Early commissions included shops, nightclubs and penthouses spread across different cities Belgium, but over the last couple of years the projects grew in size ranging from brand display unit for Kvadrat/Raf Simons, a new residence with studio for Soulwax/2manydjs to even a flagship store for Hieronymus in Zurich – Switzerland. Thanks to some magnificent projects with great exposure Glenn Sestig received international recognition with new projects in Paris, Milan and Saint-Tropez.”
