Fusionopolis. A vertical city made of glass
The "Hamilton House" in London's Broadgate quarter is an office building that is owned by British Land Company PLC, which is one of the UK's largest real estate and investment companies. The building was designed by Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill (London) and draws a lot of attention. The front elevation of the building is arched, featuring a structural glazing facade (ipasol 68/34) with partial screen printing. This stylish design helps to obscure people's ability to see the furniture inside. It's "warm facade" looks like a protective shield and provides for an excellent energy balance, improves sound protection, and withstands all the physical stress that are caused by wind, temperature deviations, and vibrations from the adjacent Liverpool Street Station.
