Diamond Research and Mercantile (DREAM) City in Gujarat, India, welcomes STRATO® for an architectural marvel, featuring 170 sqm of double-bended and 700 sqm of flat laminated glass, setting new standards in safety, aesthetics, and sustainability.
Diamond Research and Mercantile (DREAM) City, situated in the heart of Surat, Gujarat, India, emerges as a beacon of modern urban development, spanning 681 hectares. This ambitious project, emphasizing mixed-use spaces and public accessibility, aligns with global trends of sustainable, vibrant, and safe urban living. DREAM City incorporates a Smart Grid system, utilizing renewable energy and efficient waste management, fostering a green future. At the forefront of this innovative cityscape is the main entrance, an architectural marvel boasting STRATO® Extra Chiaro EVA film laminated glass.
Comprising 170 sqm of double-bended and 700 sqm of flat laminated glass, the main entrance exemplifies a seamless blend of aesthetics and safety. Crafted by Rangkala Glass Design, a prominent Surat-based company known for its avant-garde glass products, the project showcases a meticulous combination of two modular laminated glasses, meticulously integrated on natural wooden templates. This engineering feat underscores the synergy between expertise and the quest for a perfect balance of elegance and safety.
Rangkala Glass Design selected STRATO® EVA Extra Chiaro film, renowned for its aesthetic appeal and high-performance characteristics, ensuring uniform strength, safety, transparency, and an unobstructed view. The glass lamination process employed a TK Lamijet-04 oven, a Pro TK Lamijet version with four independent working surfaces and forced cooling technology, ensuring high-quality laminated glasses suitable for extensive projects like DREAM City.
Satinal Spa, the pioneering Italian company behind STRATO® EVA interlayers, stands as a driving force for innovation in safety glass manufacture. With a commitment to quality and green practices, Satinal Spa produces 100% made in Italy STRATO® EVA interlayers, making it a reference point in Europe. The collaboration with TK srl, manufacturer of the TK Lamijet-04 oven, exemplifies the integration of the best Italian technology and European components to meet high-quality standards.
DREAM City’s grand entrance, adorned with STRATO® laminated glass, not only reflects the installer’s expectations but also mirrors the commitment to prime quality, sustainability, and excellence. The success of this project underscores the effectiveness of collaborative efforts, where innovation, technology, and a shared vision converge to shape the architectural landscape of tomorrow.
