Vanceva and Saflex® interlayers are a boost not only to the external styling of the complex, but to its interior layout as well, most notably the conference room. Their use also has specific practical benefits: on the outside they form connections between the buildings and roof the areas reserved for study, and on the inside they hide switches and electrical wires while dressing up the ambience in general.
Vanceva and Saflex® interlayers have been used to build a large canopy over the entrance to the conference center, featuring a polished, linear design, as well as marquees covering the outdoor corridors that connect one building to another. These constructions, in addition to adding personality to the complex, address a challenge of tropical locations: providing shelter from the abundant rainfall. Comments Yaneth Parra Fernandez, Market Development Manager for Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece, "This project demonstrates how effective and reliable our product is in the construction of safe, flexible works, meeting the most disparate architectural needs." Facing the central plaza, original cubic structures easy to enjoy during a break or while hitting the books seem to communicate with the surrounding buildings, for an energizing touch of color.
The treatment of the main conference room is unique: translucent glass walls made with pastel-toned Vanceva e Saflex® interlayers surround the entire room, for an atmosphere both cheerful and relaxing. "Vanceva e Saflex® interlayers are versatile enough to use in any kind of application," continues Yaneth Parra Fernandez. "They go beyond the traditional separation of space, allowing architects to create cutting-edge environments that remain sober and tasteful, as befits the status of a university."
The project features innovative Saflex® Clear PVB interlayers for laminated glass and VancevaTM interlayers in three solid shades (Coral Rose, Golden Light and Pure White) and the decorated Cross Pattern style. The glass was supplied by Singapore Safety Glass Pte Ltd.
Vanceva is a brand of Solutia Inc., the world's largest producer of PVB (polyvinyl butyral) interlayers for laminated glass, used by a new generation of films for the manufacture of high-tech building and decorative glass that has opened the doors to a new way of using and interpreting color in interior and exterior design. The range of VancevaTM products is an effective, versatile response to the growing popularity of glass as a design component and to the changing tastes of the market.
