Description

A Crystal Showcase in La Défense

The Saint-Gobain Tower in Paris with COOL-LITE ST Bright Silver

 

The Saint-Gobain Tower is the new headquarters of the Saint-Gobain Group. It was designed by the french Valode & Pistre architectes and built in the high-rise district of La Défense near Paris. The 165 metre high tower has 44 storeys and 49,000 square meters of work space for 2,700 employees. Above the actual office tower rises a multi-storey, transparent cube with interior gardens and conference rooms. A smaller glass cube marks the entrance to the tower and to the Saint-Gobain showroom at the ground floor. Saint-Gobain aimed to achieve an exemplary environmental level for its new headquarters, guaranteeing users the highest standard of comfort with low energy consumption. The construction was completely planned with the method of building information modeling (BIM). Working with a digital model facilitated the complex coordination of the planning process a lot in this building project

 

The Saint-Gobain Tower is evocating a crystal, because of its shape and the fact, that the geometrically strictly structured façade is entirely made of glass - with a fine latticework application that winds around the tower like a silver ribbon and conjures up parallelograms on the façade. Naturally Saint-Gobain glass was used for the double façade: COOL-LITE ST Bright Silver on the outer skin and CLIMAPLUS Planitherm XN on the inner skin. COOL-LITE ST Bright Silver was also used for the shell of the two glass cubes. Built with more than 80 innovative products out of the entire product range of Saint-Gobain Group, the tower serves as a visible showcase to the know-how and product diversity of the internationally active manufacturer of building materials.
