Creative Use of Laminated Glass Reflects the Colorful Culture of Kenya

The idea behind this project was to bring awareness of the Vanceva® color system for laminated glass to the Kenyan market. The architects designed the Impala Glass Industries, Ltd. building to fully embrace and incorporate all of the benefits of laminated glass. Many of Vanceva®’s foundational and specialty colors come into play in this structure, and all are greatly admired by the Kenyan people. Sahara Sun, Deep Red, Sapphire, True Blue and Arctic Snow provide a few examples of the many hues chosen to represent the company. Located amidst the bright and colorful culture of Kenya, this structure mirrored their artistry in its design. Each color was featured in a different way that showcased its unique qualities and characteristics. From the multi-hued spiral staircase to the wall of colorful glass panels, the colors blend smoothly together in design, but manage to stand alone as well.
