S1de one decorat es mahl er building

Ferro’s s1de ONE architectural glass colors have been used to decorate part of the Mahler4 complex in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Realised in 2009, the Mahler4 Office Tower is part of an inner city complex consisting of buildings designed by 9 international architects that is used for offices and housing but also boasts an impressive leisure complex of retail shops, cafes, restaurants and a sports centre. This remarkable complex has not gone unnoticed and was nominated for the FGH Real Estate Prize 2010.

This contemporary construction based on a stacked block structure creates an expressive landmark which appears different from every angle. The Mahler4 office tower – the so-called “Rock Building”– designed by Dutch architect Eric van Egeraat, consists of three distinct sections, connected by a combination of transparent and printed glass elements that use Ferro’s s1de ONE enamels (applied to surface 1). The glass is manufactured by SGGS SAS Glas, part of Saint Gobain Glass Solutions, based in Sas van Gent, Netherlands.

Our s1de ONE colors were chosen by the architects to add an extra dimension to the overall decorative effect of the extremely unusual and unique building design of “The Rock”. S1de ONE includes a unique heavy metal free glass formula with exceptional chemical, UV and weather resistance properties, making suitable the application of colors to the outside surface of buildings. There is a basic range of 7 colors, which are intermixable to give a wide range of color possibilities.

Additionally the range includes special effects, like etch, and combination prints can simulate wood, stone and metals. S1de ONE colors are backed by an industry warranty, as specified by architects and glass manufacturers.
