The project is facade to access an office building. As an external image of the main access, we want to make a double skin of protection fully glazed.
The structural challenge consists of creating a double glass skin 9.00 m high and 6.50 m wide with the least number of elements to achieve maximum transparency.
In order to eliminate elements, both skins must work together as a large beam supporting perpendicular stresses, for which stainless steel braces are arranged to join them.
The glasses will be embedded laterally to support the vertical forces due to their own weight. With this solution in the entire glass panel, only a few small staples are seen where the braces are collected, while the rest of the façade is totally transparent.
In the lower part the access to the building is made through pivot doors and a revolving door that are independent from the upper structural solution.
