With its striking façade made of an interplay of glass and pre-cast concrete elements, the CO de la Gruyére in Riaz, Switzerland, is a landmark.
In fact, architects Graeme Mann & Patricia Capua Mann chose this construction method for more than just aesthetic reasons. The 780 prefabricated concrete elements act as the primary load-bearing structure and also serve as solar and sound insulation.
Glas Trösch‘s SILVERSTAR insulating glass provides the necessary light transmission to make learning as pleasant as possible. In addition, its low heat transfer coefficient supports the energy efficiency of the building concept, which is based on the Minergie standard.
