Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral® (SN) 70/35 was also chosen for the façade.

Completed in 2018, The London Fruit and Wool Exchange is located on a prominent position in London’s Spitalfields, adjacent to London Spitalfields market. The five-storey development offers Grade A commercial office space, as well as ground level retail outlets, restaurant, café and community space.

The new-build façades are predominately brick-faced, with punched windows to reflect the surrounding context. The cladding to the north atrium, central courtyard and two top floors is formed by curtain walling, with floor-to-ceiling glazing to all levels, as well as to the ground floor shopfronts.

The buildings` facades are glazed with Guardian SunGuard® SNX 60, a triple silver coated solar control glass that offers a highly desirable, consistent, neutral, transparent appearance – regardless of the viewing angle. Internal coloured reflection is optimised, adding a much more neutral tone to the glass when viewed from the inside of the building.

Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral® (SN) 70/35 was also chosen for the façade. This neutral blue glass offers solar protection while reducing the need for artificial light, combining excellent solar protection with outstanding thermal insulation.
