Libeskind Rezidences designed by world-famous architect Daniel Libeskind have a completely unique geometry, particularly visible in varied tops of the buildings and asymmetrical shape of the façades. Apart from original appearance, all buildings are designed in accordance with environmental and ecological criteria. The use of high quality acoustic laminated glass with low-emissivity coating Pilkington Optiphon™ Therm S3 S helps to reduce the noise coming from outside and increase the energy efficiency of the apartments.

The Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centre Pavilion located on the outskirts of the Dovrefjell National Park is an educational center and observation pavilion that allows visitors to admire a unique natural landscape, being a home to Europe’s last wild reindeers. The building design is based on a contrast between traditional wooden interior and modern highly reflective glass exterior, that harmonizes with the surrounding nature.

The hospital building consists of three main blocks: the nine-storey main-block and two-storey atrium have a glazed roof and large glass facades.

Designed to delay and, in many cases, prevent the onset of external condensation on Insulating Glass Units (IGUs), the low-e coating on Pilkington Anti-condensation Glass works by keeping the temperature of the external surface warmer.

Renovation of the XIXth century Market Hall in Gdańsk, Poland was carried out together with archaeological works in line with the strict restoration guidelines. A lot of interior glazing was used to help in organizing open space for retailers. It included glass boxes made of 15 mm Pilkington Optifloat™ Clear toughened glass. How do you like the final result?

Art and architecture – two areas which interpenetrate each other. Where is the border that separates them? Does such a border exist at all? For those who are looking for an inspiration about glass and are interested in what can be done with glass we recommend a video called "850°C. The glass of Tomasz Urbanowicz." It is long but worth to see to the very end. :)
