House - O

Oriel Window House

On a site area of only 42m2, We planned a housing with a horizontally long bay window (not included in the floor area) towards a park where you can see cherry blossoms.

Restelo 12

The always present concept behind the development of this residence was to create a whole well-being, family-driven space under the idea of the Four Elements. Earth, Water, Air and Fire. This idea is visible all throughout the project - in the plantation of aromatics, on the internal and external pools, on the large platforms from where the Tagus river and Almada can be seen, and also on the several fireplaces distributed through the levels. With a total floor area of 825sqm, the residence is divided into 4 levels and is a part of a 985sqm. More
With its eye-catching facade and striking shape, The George is visible from afar.
Narrowest profile elevations, best thermal insulation values, unlimited combinability: The folding glass door combines filigree design with optimal technology and slim design.
365 days a year: The Highline from Solarlux creates a smooth transition from indoors to outdoors with large glass fronts that can be almost completely opened.
Opening up the living space: Folding glass walls with a width of up to 7.50 metres, a height of 2.70 meters and a leaf width of approx. 0.90 metres were installed in the residential complex.

Saflex Structural PVB interlayer

Designed for extra strength in laminated glass Providing superior structural capacity versus conventional PVB, Saflex® Structural interlayer is a PVB interlayer designed for applications where interlayer rigidity and high glass adhesion requirements for laminated glass are critical.  In properly designed systems, Saflex Structural is capable of containing glass shards at high and low temperatures after impact and under load—even in open edge laminated glass.  Due to the strength and stiffness of the Saflex Structural interlayer, laminated glass can either sustain a higher uniform load for a given configuration or the glass thickness can be reduced while keeping the same load and area as compared to conventional laminat...

Saflex Clear PVB interlayer

Enhanced safety for architectural laminated glass Globally, architects and designers rely on Saflex® Clear PVB interlayers in laminated glass to help meet regional standards for safety glass. Protecting people and property, Saflex interlayer adds post-breakage safety and security to laminated safety glass applications. Unlike monolithic glass, properly designed laminated glazing made with Saflex interlayer reduces the risk of injury from broken glass because the glass adheres to the interlayer after impact.  By holding glass in place, the interlayer provides protection by preventing the release of glass shards from becoming dangerous flying or falling glass fragments.  This may also help keep the system integral once broken&...
