Şişecam Temperable Solar Control Low-E Glass Neutral 62/44 product was used in the project.

Europe's largest flat glass manufacturer Şişecam’s flat glass products were preferred in the Kumport project in Istanbul Ambarlı, where the port facilities were redesigned. Şişecam Temperable Solar Control Low-E Glass Neutral 62/44 product was used in the project, the main element of which is the massive interpretation of containers.

The project designed by KG Architecture is one of the reference projects brought to life with the innovative products of Şişecam Flat Glass that pioneers many firsts in the field of flat glass, and leads the development of the flat glass industry in Turkey and the region.

The high light transmittance, heat insulation and solar control requested in the project are provided by a single coating with "Şişecam Temperable Solar Control Low-E Glass Neutral 62/44" product.

A Şişecam Project: Kumport

The scope is the design of a group of buildings for Kumport Port Services with a total of 6.000 m² while rethinking the port and facilities. Headquarters, maintenance facilities, workshops and storage areas determine the main components of the design.

The indoor space requirement of the administration building and the height limitation of 10.5 meters determined by local regulations make it necessary and possible to solve the design in a horizontal way.

The atrium called the entrance, waiting and interior space, is designed at a height of 10.5 m and ensures that the building receives natural light not only from the front and rear facades, but also from above. Thus, this spacious, bright and open space is separated from the working areas and contributes to the indoor working areas with its light and visual quality.
