Challenge
Simplify construction and reduce the cost of the structural glass bridge that serves as the hotel lobby’s centrepiece.
Solution
Ordinarily, a glass bridge involves a series of connecting glass sections to form a load-bearing balustrade, but the need to save time and reduce construction costs prevented us from using this design option. We sourced a glazing manufacturer in Switzerland that produced a tempered-laminated glass balustrade in one piece, spanning the lobby’s 9-metre width. The resulting bridge is an all-glass structure in its purest form, with the unique look of a floating glass skywalk.
