James Bond gets a stunning view of the Alps thanks to Saint-Gobain

In Spectre®, the latest episode in the spy saga, the legendary secret agent 007 stops over in Sölden (Austria), one of the most famous ski resorts in the world.

There he meets the new Bond girl in the spectacular ICE-Q building, glazed by Glassolutions Austria.  Scintillating at more than 3,000 meters, this gourmet restaurant converted in the film into a futuristic hospital offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the Ötztal valley’s 250 summits.ECKELT GLAS’s Steyr facility supplied the 900m2 of CLIMATOP triple glazing used in the façade and the terrace balustrade.

The French actress Léa Seydoux, who plays the James Bond® girl, invites the British spy to admire the glaciers through huge bay windows. The latter, after joining the gadget specialist Q on the lower floor, then witnesses the young woman being kidnapped, thanks to the see-through architecture.

Designed by the famous architects’ firm Obermoser, the three-storey building opened in December 2013. It hosted the shooting of Spectre on the glacier from December 2014 to February 2015. The movie was released in November.
