Description of the project

Nine hundred panels with gold-coloured Guardian SunGuard® Solar Gold 20 and Guardian UltraClear™ glass, help to create a stunning highlight for France’s latest landmark building.

The building itself was designed by Anouk Legendre and Nicolas Desmazières of XTU Architects and makes a strong architectural statement thanks to its bold curves and overall shape which are intended to evoke wine’s soul and liquid nature: seamless roundness, intangible and sensual. Obviously, glass plays an important part in reflecting these aspects.

Two types of glass were selected: Guardian SunGuard Solar Gold 20 and Guardian UltraClear. SunGuard Solar Gold 20 is the preferred choice of many architects and designers.
