Home ARTICLES EControl glass: dynamic transparency with 16-metrehigh atrium
Open, communicative, creative: at the new European headquarters of the Lapp Group (U.I. Lapp GmbH) in Stuttgart-Vaihingen the openspace concept is lived right into the detail. This central theme influences the entire architectural concept: the transparent exterior
of the administration building is characterized by large window areas; the two L-shaped wings of
the building are connected by a 16-metre-high glass atrium. In order to maintain the openness, Lapp decided to use the dimmable glass ECONTROL smart 45/8 (EControl, Plauen). It offers two advantages: an unobstructed view to the outside remains guaranteed – and the intelligent glass has a positive effect on the air conditioning of the atrium.
