Glass-walled offices, elegant multi-colored partitions, and shimmering reflections show off the new headquarters of Value Partners, a prominent strategic consulting firm based in São Paulo, Brazil.

The design, by Königsberger Vannucchi Architects Associated, makes the most of the building's interiors by redistributing volumes and creating a sophisticated color scheme. Inside this structural reworking of the whole, the use of colorful Vanceva™ interlayers for laminated glass (, is a remarkable new solution at the cutting edge of both looks and function, flexible enough for specific design requirements while maximizing natural light.

Luminous, transparent, safe and chic are the buzzwords of this project, qualities that imbue the architects' efforts and provide extended impact through visual and tactile effects. The glass walls made with Vanceva™ interlayers for laminated glass make natural light resonate and highlight the sequence of color that interweaves throughout the building. The design is minimalist yet striking, perfect for a serial installation that is equally effective for the reception area, lounge, conference rooms and each and every office. Comments Yaneth Parra Fernandez, Market Development Manager for Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece, "Space is organized here according to a strict modular approach, which provides immediate comprehension of the various corporate functions by playing up the colors of Vanceva™ interlayers."

Architects Jorge Königsberger and Gianfranco Vannucchi used Vanceva™ interlayers to build full-length glass partitions designed specifically for either maximum transparency or a veiled look, depending on privacy needs, as well as excellent light and soundproofing. “Vanceva™ interlayers are the new sensation in architecture and design, including for partitions," adds Fernandez. "Flexible and modular, they’re ideal for addressing precise decorating needs, and are reliable and safe over time."

This project required about 250 square meters of laminated glass with Vanceva™ PVB interlayers in Cool White (ref. 000A) and a variety of colors (refs. 0245, 0056 and 0067) achieved by combining different films.

Vanceva™ is a brand of Solutia Inc., the world's largest producer of PVB (polyvinyl butyral) interlayers for laminated glass, used by a new generation of films for the manufacture of high-tech building and decorative glass that has opened the doors to a new way of using and interpreting color in interior and exterior design. The range of VancevaTM products is an effective, versatile response to the growing popularity of glass as a design component and to the changing tastes of the market.
