The Canopy marks the coming together of three stalwarts in their respective fields – Saint-Gobain Glass, with its technical prowess, architect Hafeez Contractor, with his aesthetic acumen and the Mahindra Group, with its spirit of enterprise.

It is a commercial complex housed in Mahindra World City (MWC) which is pioneering the concept of integrated cities designed to strike a fine balance between life, living and livelihood.Saint-Gobain’s glazing solutions once again exemplify the increasingly indispensable role of glass in the commercial space and in the larger context of contemporary architecture.

Located on the NH45, MWC encompasses business, residential and commercial zones within its fold. In the 1550 acre campus, 60000 sq.ft. is dedicated to The Canopy which is home to an array of services that offer comfort & convenience, recreation & relaxation. The unique design features a central courtyard and open decks under the sky. Among India’s most renowned and respected architects, Hafeez Contractor has strategically made use of glass in the commercial space in a way that is aesthetically appealing and functionally superior.

From food courts to book stores, from banks & ATMs to travel desks, from forex to fashion, from medical stores to supermarkets, The Canopy defines life in the comfort zone. It is also about creating sustainable eco-systems that are getting redefined by glass in the commercial space.

For The Canopy, Saint-Gobain’s Reflectasol was hence a natural choice. Its reflective, solar control attributes make it an ideal glass in the commercial space, combining the elements of high light reflectance and low light transmission. Therefore, it not only improves visual comfort against direct sunlight but also ensures internal privacy. Its mirror-like appearance gives SGG Reflectasol a distinct visual appeal, the Green shade further accentuating the fact that MWC Chennai is India’s first IGBC Gold Certified “Green Township“.

At The Canopy, SGG Reflectasol has played the role of a glass in the commercial space, to perfection. As a double-glazed, comfort glass, it is stylish & sophisticated, as much as it is functional and practical. With the convergence of aesthetics and utility, SGG Reflectasol is a reflection of world-class glass in a world-class project.
