Transforming the European Convention Center with Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral Glass

Step into a world of architectural brilliance as the European Convention Center in Luxembourg City redefines the possibilities of design and functionality. With the visionary minds at Schemel & Wirtz Architectes Associés leading the way, this 24-storey high-rise stands as a testament to innovation and elegance. At its heart lies the choice of Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral (SN) 62/34 coated solar control glass, setting new standards for performance and aesthetic appeal.

Unveiling the European Convention Center

Designed by Schemel & Wirtz Architectes Associés, the European Convention Center captivates with its groundbreaking concept. The building’s structure features two horizontal trays acting as a base for a series of set bodies that gracefully penetrate the roof cladding. Enclosed by a stunning glass hall with an overhanging flying roof, the Convention Center presents its fifth façade, an architectural marvel visible from the surrounding taller buildings.

The Radiance of Guardian Glass

At the heart of the Convention Center’s design is the remarkable choice of Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral (SN) 62/34 coated solar control glass for its glazed façade. This glass not only allows for an abundance of natural light transmission, reducing the need for artificial lighting, but also offers outstanding solar protection and thermal insulation properties. With its upgraded version, Guardian SunGuard® SN 63, this double-silver coated solar control glass features a subtle neutral grey appearance, adding to its visual appeal and energy efficiency.

A Symphony of Light and Form

The Convention Center’s square glazed façade stretches an impressive 300 meters in length, and its reduced profile harmonizes perfectly with the inner structures and the flow of visitors throughout the day and night. The captivating ground-level panoramic window, with its elegantly curved glazing, not only welcomes daylight but also establishes a connection with the surrounding natural environment, creating a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces.

The European Convention Center owes its architectural brilliance to the collaborative efforts of esteemed professionals:

  • Architect: Schemel & Wirtz Architectes Associés
