Guardian SunGuard® eXtra Selective (SNX) 60 was chosen for the fully glazed façade.

De Walvis is a two-storey commercial office building located on the waterfront of the Westerdok quay in Amsterdam. The building has been completely renovated, allowing more natural daylight into the building and providing optimal comfort including BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certification.

KAAN Architects created the design for the renovation, respecting the qualities of the original building, resulting in a contemporary but sustainable office building. The surrounding parking area was also redeveloped and given a greener character.

Guardian SunGuard® eXtra Selective (SNX) 60 was chosen for the fully glazed façade. This triple silver coated solar control glass helps reduce energy costs by lowering the demand for artificial lighting, air conditioning and heating. SNX 60 has a highly desirable, consistent, neutral, transparent appearance – regardless of the viewing angle. Internal coloured reflection has been optimised, adding a much more neutral tone to the glass when viewed from the inside of the building. SNX 60 lets in 60% of natural daylight combined with just 29% of the solar heat – one of the highest selectivity (ratio of light transmission to solar factor) products on the market.
