hiscox building

Location: York, UK
Architect: Make Architects
Facade Design: Facade and Glazing Solutions UK

York is a city with a rich architectural heritage, and Make Architects was hired to design a unique and contemporary office building that respected that history. The final design featured concave and convex glass walls that would be difficult to achieve using a standard curtain wall system.

Facade and Glazing Solutions UK, our partners in the United Kingdom, utilized VS1 to bring Make’s atrium and terrace parapet design to life. Those facades consist of large, curved insulated units, the largest of which is 6’ 6” wide by 13’ 9” high.
