Concept Sketch
National Glass Centre - Sunderland

In designing this new factory in Teeside, our primary intention was to create a building that is visually permeable throughout, so as to demystify the process wihin. A continuous planar glass facade to the south provides expansive views from the public areas, whilst generating passive stack effect ventilation to provide summer cooling and winter warming. The roof is a series of ETFE foil pneumatic cushions, that sail overhead to create an excellent quality of light to the interior.
