122 Leadenhall - The 'Cheesegrater'

Designed by Richard Rogers of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, 122 Leadenhall has become an iconic part of the London skyline. Dubbed ‘The Cheesegrater’ during its planning phase by City of London Corporation’s Chief Planning Officer Peter Rees, the name stuck and has since been accepted by Londoners and tourists alike. Towering at 225 metres, the building was designed to fit into the London skyline without compromising the view from the nearby St Paul cathedral. This was achieved by the shape of the building, which is like no other thanks to its very noticeable sloped façade.

Competitors glass out and Guardian SunGuard in for Old Broad St, London

The rejuvenation of 125 Old Broad Street, better known as the Stock Exchange Tower, has turned an old building into a striking new landmark on the London skyline. The 26 storey tower in the heart of London was refurbished in July 2008. However in 2009 the new tempered glass facade supplied by one of our competitors was replaced with Guardian annealed, laminated safety glass coated with SunGuard High Selective 62/34 offering optimum energy efficiency and unspoiled views out over central London...

Guardian glass covers the Burj Khalifa

The tallest building in the word, the Burj Khalifa, uses Guardian glass as its shield from the elements. The building features more than 1.8 million square feet (174,000 square meters) of Guardian SunGuard Solar Silver 20 and Guardian ClimaGuard NLT Low-E. The Burj Khalifa building is residential and commercial with luxury apartments on levels 20-160 --- the most residential floors of any building in the world -- with offices above and a boutique hotel. Guardian also supplied the glass for the Burj Residence project, six towers that surround the Burj Khalifa.

Guardian Glass will Clad Jeddah Tower, Soon-to-Be Tallest Building in the World

Developers of Jeddah Tower – what will be the world’s tallest building – selected Guardian Glass to supply the façade glass for the project’s over one-kilometer-high landscape. Jeddah Tower is an unprecedented project that dares to go beyond the one-kilometer threshold. The over $1.2 billion super-tall building structure will cover an area of 5.3 million square meters and include 439 apartments, 200 hotel rooms, 59 elevators and 2,205 parking spaces. It is set to break world records for tallest building, highest occupied floor, highest architectural top, highest tip and highest sky terrace.

Here East - Broadcast Centre

The design of the Here East Broadcast Centre in London promotes visibility between all areas of the building, whilst paying particular attention to the quality and performance of acoustics, ventilation, lighting and thermal performance. Each unitised cladding panel features two panes of heat strengthened laminate glazing, comprising a total eight laminate sheets. The ceramic frit is printed on the external sheet’s inner surface, and a layer of solar coating – to reduce solar gain and improve the performance of the glass – is applied to surface four.

The Cutty Sark once again rides the waves

The Cutty Sark is the world’s last surviving tea clipper and is one of the true prides of England and particularly Greenwich in Greater London, where the ship now resides. The use of glass to accommodate the hull of the ship, has allowed many different angled panes to produce a sea like effect that appears to glisten under the ship as if riding the crest of a wave. This has been an ideal project to show off the colour consistency of our SunGuard® High Selective....

Victoria Gate

The Victoria Gate development is home to the flagship store of the classic British brand, John Lewis. The diagrid-patterned façade is made from struts of etched concrete and is punctured by an array of Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral™ 70/35 coated glass windows which add a unique sense of order and rhythm to the façade. The natural blue colour of the SN 70/35 glass works beautifully with the subtle tones of the concrete, whilst flooding the arcade space in natural light.
