La Cité du Vin
The Bordeaux culture center devoted to wine
The Guardian glass delivered the best results and the most modern aspect.
– A. Legendre - N. Desmazieres - XTU Architects
Nine hundred panels with gold-coloured Guardian SunGuard® Solar Gold 20 and Guardian UltraClear™ glass, help to create a stunning highlight for France’s latest landmark building.
The building itself was designed by Anouk Legendre and Nicolas Desmazières of XTU Architects and makes a strong architectural statement thanks to its bold curves and overall shape which are intended to evoke wine’s soul and liquid nature: seamless roundness, intangible and sensual. Obviously, glass plays an important part in reflecting these aspects.
Guardian Glass worked with glass processors Sivaq and Cricursa and glaziers Coveris and Garrigues S.A to complete the XTU vision for Bourdeaux's new icon.
