Europe's largest flat glass manufacturer Şişecam’s flat glass products were preferred in Flora Panorama project in Burgas, Bulgaria. Şişecam Solar Control Low-E Glass product was used in the project that is a housing complex designed to blend in the surrounding context of nature and the city.
The project designed by Sharenkov Architects is one of the reference projects brought to life with the innovative products of Şişecam Flat Glass. Thanks to the "Şişecam Solar Control Low-E Glass" product; high light transmittance, heat insulation and solar control requested in the project are provided by a single coating.
The architecture office Sharenkov Architects aimed to realize a building that is naturally integrated into the environment, both part of nature and part of the city with a memorable appearance. The architecture of the building resembles sea waves diverging in space. Composed of soft curved shapes of glass and concrete, the building volume offers gradual expansions of the floors in the upper parts of the facade. This volumetric play is made possible by complex oval shapes, large concrete consoles up to 3 m, and elements such as curved glass railings.
The building has a photovoltaic system installed on the roof, providing electricity for the common parts of the building. The structure is detailed for energy efficiency with an effective holistic insulating system, including bricks with enhanced insulating properties, window profiles, and glazing units with Şişecam Solar Control Low-E Glass.
