Pilkington Planar™ Serves The Community

Hackney Council has recently opened its new Service Centre utilising Pilkington Planar™ to house their public-facing functions and provide a work space for over 1,000 people on one site. 400m² of Pilkington Planar™ glazing was installed on the front entrance wall to allow maximum levels of light into the internal space whilst contributing additional solar control to the building’s impressive green credentials.

At the heart of this new building is a five-storey glass cased atrium. Traditionally, civic buildings have been concealed from public view, but the Council was keen for the architects for the project, Hopkins, to create a new public space for the people of Hackney, with its many functions visible to all. The use of Pilkington Planar™ provides a welcoming entrance to the Service Centre for residents, which complements the landmark Grade II listed Art Deco Town Hall clearly visible through the glass.
