Project • By ExpolightRestaurants


NON  is a modern restaurant of Uzbek cuisine in Kharkiv, Ukraine.  Cotton is one of the historical symbols of Uzbekistan. That’s why we used it as a part of the design for individual pendant and table lamps, which have become a strong focus of the interior.  Lamps are hand-made with individual designs.  Cotton and glass are very tactile natural materials with diametrically different properties. We placed the cotton twigs in glass bulbs and integrated light into these bulbs. The softness and lightness of cotton create a harmonic contrast with transparent, hard, and smooth glass.  Each glass bulb has a unique shape and relief. The luminaire structure is made of craft glass and brass.  The shape of glass fla... More

LC Privacy Glass: Conference Room

LC Privacy Glass was used to create this state-of-the-art conference room for a prominent Construction Management company in Woodbury, NY. The door and surrounding glass walls, when transparent, allow a full view of the beautiful reception area and mural, and then can become fully private when needed with the flip of a switch. Our patented PowerTrack allows the conference room door to slide open with no visible wires. The front wall can be used as a white board, or instantly transforms into a rear projection screen for impressive, eye-catching presentations. This project was installed by C&L Aluminum using the CRL 702 Series framing system. More

Project • By Razvan Barsan + PartnersOffices

Technology Synergy

This daring project seeks to revive an abandoned building in the center of Bucharest and transform it into a sustainable and eccentric urban footprint. The architects propose an office building characterized by transparent surfaces merging with natural elements such as a rich vegetation, spreading over the built spaces. The atrium of the building is emphasized by a fully glazed surface, a reinforced glass façade that reveals the inner layout of the design. The playful concept focuses on open spaces interrupted by thin lines of glass and metal.  The atrium found on the ground level extends the passerby’s view and offers spectacular lines and colors. The working spaces are thought as suspended units, floating on pillars above the gr... More

Inserted in a rural context next to a running water brook, the house has as an ordering and generating project element the preexisting stone wall confining with the public street. The idea is to extend this wall and integrate it into the design of the house. The material is changed from stone to cork, differentiating the intervention of the pre-existence.  Assuming the wall as an opaque element simultaneously interior and exterior that ensures privacy in relation to the road, the house closes to the north and becomes transparent in the south opposite side to the “private” part of the terrain.  Here, the house lies on a platform that rests above the ground. This separation act contrasts with the creation of patios and the use of ge... More

Museum at Prairiefire

As the signature building of a new 60-acre suburban live-work-play development, the Museum at Prairiefire was designed as a civic hub featuring world-class traveling exhibits from the American Museum of Natural History. By engaging the local population in broader cultural and scientific experiences, while architecturally celebrating the rich story of the region, the Museum grounds it within a larger context and helps forge an identity for the community. Through the use of color and sculptural forms, the design boldly contrasts with the surroundings, but touches the sensibilities of the locality by orchestrating distinctive materials, shapes and technologies to produce a new and provocative regionalism.The design concept evokes the...
