A new company base for Taiwan’s largest glass manufacturer, Taiwan Glass in Fujian, China, a 4.200 sqm office building was commissioned by the client to administer the new factory complex. A three-storey building to house the company’s offices, administration, showroom, restaurants as well as apartments for company managers along with connected buildings such as the gatehouse and a plant building were constructed. The general floor plan of the building was structured around two large courtyards allowing for a generous amount of daylight and generating a very comfortable working environment. Together with Taiwan Glass a partially coated Low-E glass was developed, which was produced especially for the façade of the new office building in Fujian. The coated areas of the glass are mirror-finished from the outside but still remain transparent from the inside. The result is a glass facade that provides the required protection from sun and heat as well as producing an aesthetically interesting appearance. Services provided included design development, production of construction documents as well as artisitc supervision of the entire planning process (Planning Phases 1-5).
