FEATURED GLASS: COOL-LITE SKN 054 II (DIAMANT)
200 Grays Inn Road is an impressive refurbishment project in Central London. Home to a number of media companies, the building is currently occupied by a number of high-profile media organisations including ITN Productions, ITV and Warner Bros.
The design blends workspace with leisure, in response to changing professional lifestyles.
Energy efficiency was also highlighted as a target by the client, which was addressed using simple but effective design elements. Glazed windows and walls reduced the amount of heat that could enter or escape the building. The office building features oversized units, made using COOL-LITE SKN 054 II (the '0' within the coating description indicates DIAMANT very low iron glass substrate has been used, rather than PLANICLEAR).
