Designed by Gruber + Kleine-Kraneburg Architekten, the new Leica Camera AG headquarters building at the Leitz Park in Wetzlar is a commercial complex that offers Leica enthusiasts and fans of photography exciting insights into the world of Leica.
The curved façade of the headquarters closely resembles a set of camera lenses. Two cylindrical structures form the main entrance to the building – the circular segments continue inside, providing an automatic association with the Leica lenses and ring products.
On the ground floor, a partially curved glass façade standing some 5 metres high and running around the entire structure, offers passers-by expansive views into the building.
Guardian SunGuard SuperNeutral™ 70/41 was chosen for the curved glass facade. With a low solar factor of 41% and a light transmission of 70%, SN 70/41 provides the ideal balance between solar control, light transmission and thermal insulation, adding to the comfort of the employees and visitors.
The glass façade, together with the construction of a viewing platform, emphasises both the architecture of the new building as well as the entrance to the city of Wetzlar.
Whether you're drawing skyscrapers or remodeling homes, creating museum cases or planning the perfect elevator, designing with Guardian Glass products gives your product a modern, vibrant life of its own. Our team is ready to help you achieve more with glass.
