Pilkington is the key at Bauhaus

Residents and office workers can now enjoy panoramic views in the bright and inspiring Bauhaus development on Quay Street in Manchester, thanks to glazing from Pilkington.

Approximately 1200m2 of Pilkington Suncool features in the second phase of the development, which took two years to complete. Pilkington Suncool provides low emissivity for high thermal insulation as well as reducing solar heat gain. The mixed use development in which it is featured houses 70 high specification luxury apartments and 51,000m2 of office space.

Dan Barnes, Regional Director at Aedas Architects, who designed the building, explains why they specified Pilkington Suncool: “The building features a large amount of glass for a number of reasons; to allow natural light in, which creates a welcoming, bright and pleasant atmosphere. We wanted to emphasise the feeling of space and maintain a connection with the exterior. Critically we wanted to maximise the energy efficiency of the building, using Pilkington Suncool allows us to do that without having to compromise on the type of building material and aesthetic quality.”
