CDB Arquitectura’s renovation for the EDEA Business School in Barcelona, Spain, adds color and dimension to the original flat, grey exterior with a façade of vertical laminated glass panels of Vanceva Sahara Sun and Sapphire Blue fabricated by Vidresif.

WOCA juror Benjamin Wright fittingly described the façade’s new design by stating, “The tastefully reserved yet brilliantly colored undulating pattern of the vertical louvers transforms an utterly nondescript façade into an architectural eye-catcher.”

Classrooms and study rooms have access to the new façade, creating a warm and inviting learning environment. The school’s ecological and technological offices feature wood-colored workstations with vertical gardens, transitional carpeting to designate areas, and interior partitions of laminated, tempered-laminated, and curved-laminated glass in shades of green. For areas requiring more privacy, a third Vanceva film, Artic Snow, has been added in the laminate.

The school’s renovation showcases the beauty of colored glass and highlights its versatility when combined with other processes such as tempering, screen printing, anti-burglar, insulating glass units, and curved glass.
