The converted train station in Oerlikon (CH) is put into the spotlight by a freshly bright green. The two glass eyecatchers were realized using the colored laminated safety glass SWISSLAMEX COLORDESIGN from Glas Trösch.

From the outside, the green shimmering glass bodies shine through their luminosity, while from the inside they offer the viewer a greenish shimmering play between light and color.

The translucent laminated safety glass SWISSLAMEX COLORDESIGN not only gives the glass canopies a special gloss, but also ensures adequate protection and safety: In case of glass breakage the broken glass adhere to the PVB film and the glass ensures a sufficient residual stability.

In addition, the strong green color is retained for as long as possible, since SWISSLAMEX COLORDESIGN has a particularly high color stability, which withstands the different weather influences.

For the project, the Swiss architects 10: 8 received the award SIA Umsicht 2017. With this acknowledgement, the Swiss Association for Interior Designers appreciates outstanding architectural-cultural contributions to the future-oriented design of Switzerland's living space.
