SEFAR® Vision illuminates Swiss lakeside building

EcoNote | February 7, 2014 | By:

SEFAR, Wurth2The Würth Administration Building on the shores of Lake Constance in Rorschach, Switzerland, features a SEFAR® Architecture Vision fabric interlayer that complements the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Its double skin of glass creates a distinctive aesthetic that alternately reflects and transmits natural light, offering a dramatic building exterior and a unique workspace inside.

Achieved by SEFAR’s Vision AL 140/70, a laminated metallic-gloss fabric interlayer, the system offers more than aesthetic benefits. With its unique metal coatings and mesh configurations, Vision improves thermal insulating qualities for reducing solar heat gain while allowing for a reduced level of visual light transmission and reducing glare. The fabrics can also be printed with UV-stabilized inks to produce any Pantone color, patterns, and other design effects without the design reading through to the interior.SEFAR, Wurth1
