Zuidas is considered one of the most important business and banking districts in Amsterdam. Just a few minutes' cycling distance from the historic city centre and not far from the motorway and airport, it is developing into a comprehensive urban centre - a place to live, work and dwell.
The previously monofunctional 2Amsterdam office towers in the north are currently being rebuilt according to the design of the KCAP Architects&Planners so that they also correspond to the new approach: A new hotel in the west tower will complement the neighbouring office building in the future. In cooperation with the insulating glass manufacturer Polypane and the metal constructor De Groot en Visser BV, the functional coating SILVERSTAR COMBI Neutral 51/26 from Glas Trösch was used for the atrium on the ground floor and the flush glass facade.
With a light transmission of 51 %, a g-value of 27 % and a u-value of 1.0, the coating offers an ideal combination of sun control, thermal insulation and daylight inlet for this location. With a total area of 10,400 m², the glass is convincing in its functionality and underlines the environmentally friendly demands of the city planners.
