We talked with many companies, but Guardian was the only one that could offer a base layer that would guarantee that the sun protection layer maintains its functions during the manufacturing process
Karl Lindenmaier, Senior Project Manager at Josef Gartner

Located on the Elbe River, on the western tip of the HafenCity in Hamburg, Germany, the Elbphilharmonie is one of the largest and most acoustically advanced concert halls in the world and an outstanding example of modern architecture.

Complex curved glass façade

The new building’s stunning 21,800m2 glass façade consists in part (approx. 5,000m2) of curved glass that transforms the structure into an enormous quartz crystal, whose appearance continually changes as it catches the reflections of the sky, the water and the city lights.

Products supplied by Guardian Glass


The architects, Herzog & de Meuron, selected as a base glass for the whole façade Guardian ExtraClear® float glass for its combination of transparency, aesthetics and performance.
Guardian also supplied its coated solar control glass, SunGuard® Solar Light Blue 52.
To provide complete performance for the curved IGU windows, Guardian supplied its ClimaGuard® DT thermally insulating coated glass.
