42 meters long, 1.8 meters high and opaque. The SWISSRAILING CLASSIC provides different levels of safety for this detached house.
Guardian SunGuard® Solar Silver 20 was selected for the glass roof due to its high level of solar protection, particularly in applications where heavy sun would make excessive solar heat gain an issue.
Conveying Community and Collectivity through Dynamic Design
Interlayers make glazing safer and better
Guardian SunGuard® SN 70/35 coated solar control glass was selected for the glazed façade of the building.
For the glazed façade, the architect required high light transmission, solar protection, a neutral appearance and a good level of light reflection.
The buildings` facades are glazed with Guardian SunGuard® SNX 60, a triple silver coated solar control glass that offers a highly desirable, consistent, neutral, transparent appearance – regardless of the viewing angle.
Thanks in part to its unique solar control design, rainwater catchment system and cool green roof, the building has earned Green Globes Certification with a Two Green Globes rating.

The combination of the double-skin concept with unitized systems made current typologies of double glazed units possible.
Numerous innovations have been seen in the last decades concerning new façade technologies. These were driven by new materials or new applications of known materials, such as glued-on wall structures (structural glazing) in the 60’s and 70’s.
It is estimated that 100 million to 1 billion birds a year perish due to collisions with glass.(1-2) In North America, some communities have enacted legislation aimed at protecting birds by calling for the design and installation of birdsafe glazing.
This paper will discuss the psychology of perception, threshold, and emotion in interior glass design.
Glass distortions may cause objects to appear irregular and out of focus when observed through a distorted glass panel.
Modern architecture continues to produce ever more attractive and higher quality façade constructions.
The aim of this paper is to show that it is possible to reduce costs while maintaining clear architectural, constructive and structural concepts.
Structural, architectural and installation demands must all be considered in glass structures. The best solutions do not form a compromise between these demands but integrate them into one solution.
In the constant search for original designs that truly push the limits, many building projects in the Middle East have been driving global innovation in engineering and façade design.
New technological advances in glass have taken curved glass fabrication to different levels of complexity and performance in the last few years, and design continues to drive into new frontiers.
Use of cold-bent and warped glass units in unitized curtain walling is a state-of-the art application.
This contribution is an excerpt of the journal publication by Louter et al. 2018. It explores the potential of thin glass for architectural applications and reports on two thin glass concepts.
