Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral™ (SN) 70/37 coated solar control glass was selected for its beautiful, neutral, transparent appearance with low reflection, consistent colour, high solar protection and high light transmission.

Completed in 2015, Crystal is an energy-efficient, crystal-shaped office building located in the sought-after Vinohrady district of Prague. The unique architecture of the building was designed in Atelier 15 under the direction of Libor Hrdoušek and renowned Czech architect Radek Lampa.

The modern A-class office building has 14 floors and a total office space of over 14,000 square metres. There are business units, cafes, restaurants, and 130 parking spaces over four floors of underground garages.

For the glazed façade, the architects required high light transmission, excellent solar protection, a neutral appearance and a good level of light reflection so that the look of the building could be underlined in the reflections of the façade. Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral™ (SN) 70/37 coated solar control glass was selected for its beautiful, neutral, transparent appearance with low reflection, consistent colour, high solar protection and high light transmission.
