18 glass boxes that constitute a collection of shop windows for 18 tenants – that is the refurbished facade of Chungha building located right at the Gangnam high street in Seoul, South Korea. Large windows expose each individual commercial-service space. The glass in combination with LED lights gave the old-fashioned building completely new face.

Famous Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens has been recently expanded. A new futuristic structure by Zaha Hadid is a restaurant building. Lots of curved glass and fancy undulating roof made of tensile fabric epitomize the uniqueness of the project. Have you seen it live?

Blackfriars railway station in the heart of London has undergone major redevelopment. Central to the success of this project was the creative use of the Pilkington Planar™ structural glazing system, to create a memorable and practical design solution. Toughened and laminated panes of security glass were combined with extra-clear Pilkington Optiwhite™. The ultimate effect is stunning!

There are millions of beech leafs all around the world, but only one building in such a unique shape: Eco-factory centre in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands. It’s eco not only thanks to its eye-catching architecture, but also due to its innovative “green” solutions. One of the element that let meet zero-energy consumption standard is a bespoke glazing featuring Pilkington Optitherm™ S3 low-e glass.

WRAMS (Water Reclamation and Management Scheme) in Homebush Bay, Sydney, Australia sheathed in a chrysalis of Pilkington glass, delivers stunning visual access for functions normally concealed from public gaze. A filigree steel structure and extensive glazing of the pavilion made of Pilkington Optilam™ Green contribute to the appearance of cool, crystalline purification.
