Project description:

GLASSBEL company began supply of glazing for the hotel project of Citizen M group in London. Project architect, Sheppard Robson, designed the building taking into account its location - the Tower of London and the remains of the Roman city wall are situated nearby. Therefore, the building looks modern, but in the project classic shapes and colors are used.

IGUs with dimensions up to 2.3×2.7 m meet strict requirements specified by the Client - architectural solution, noise protection as well as high energy saving characteristics ( building will be certified according to the international standard of energy efficiency BREEAM). Outer laminated glass includes heat strengthened glass with multifunctional high selective coating, as well as special sound-absorbing film, which reduces the noise level inside the room to the required values​​.

The inner glass is tempered glass with Heat Soak Test and silk printing Glass-SILK. Silkprinting creates an opaque zone at the bottom of the IGU, creating the desired visual effect.
