Architecture at Large Baccarat Project Feature

What does a facade say about a business within? How can glass translate to a brand identity? Founder of Architecture at Large, Rafael de Cárdenas answers all of these questions and more in a beautifully written piece by The Architect's Newspaper covering the Baccarat project W&W Glass completed.

This iconic brand required a little something outside the box for the occasion.

“One of the most difficult techniques in the cutting of crystal is the diamond cut,” said Rafael de Cárdenas,  “and one of the key attributes that sets Baccarat apart from their competition is the level of intricacy to their cuts.” These cuts created a shifting image for visitors to the flagship store.
