Our large-scale installation of glass wall cladding gives this building its unique and inspiring feel.
It’s the sheer scale of the work that OAG did at Nomura Bank’s UK head office that makes it so stunning. Saunter into the reception area and the glass cladding stretches nine meters high, meeting with the building’s dramatic slatted timber ceiling. The feel is a perfect marriage between practical Eastern simplicity and urban modernity.
OAG had to measure areas for cladding on-site as they became available on each floor, then deliver the glass and transfer it to the walls. First, plywood backing was put in place, then the glass was bonded to it with a stainless steel feature detail outlining the glass panels.
Low iron glass with a white Vanceva interlayer is found in the lift areas, but for the reception a pre-acid glass called Satinovo was used, with a laminated white Vanceva layer creating the matt effect.
In other locations a matt black glass was used as a highlight. OAG also contributed clear balustrade glazing flush with multilayered black glass to the building’s atrium bridge.
Finally we installed a EI120 fire protection screen & 60/60 door to match on the staircase landing.
