The headquarters of the BNL-BNP Paribas Group building is a stunning example of how to successfully combine innovative architectural design with optimum comfort and wellbeing for the building’s occupants.
Due to the clever structural glazing, the aesthetics are visually appealing, reflecting the building’s surroundings on all sides and changing its appearance depending on the time of day and the weather.
The glazing helps transform the building into a mirage-like structure, whose appearance continually changes as it catches the reflections of the sky and the city lights, whilst at the same time avoiding being seen as an obstruction to views.
For the structural glazing, Guardian Glass supplied five different products from its SunGuard® range of solar control glass – four of these providing a silver aspect, the other a more neutral appearance.
‘’Our goal was to meet the functional needs with a building that is capable, in terms of its autonomy and identity, to belong to the urban (...), while at the same time, also being representative both of the city of Rome and its users.‘’
