Project Description

Parker Hannifin Corp. is a Fortune 500 company that manufactures motion-control technologies: It produces everything from O-rings, to hoses, to aircraft brake systems. Its European Headquarters' triple-glazed façade helps to insulate against the ambient noise, and it also reduces heat gain. A standard double-glazed insulated glass unit makes up the inside wall, followed by a 9-to-10-inch airspace filled with a mechanized shading system. Another pane of glass forms the exterior surface.

The glazing addressed an ordinance that requires views to the outside for every employee. A narrow floor plate that runs 25 feet from core to curtainwall—a departure from U.S. high-rise projects which, lead designer Ronald A. Reed says, run closer to 42 to 45 feet—ensures that everyone can see the view.

The cost has been withheld.
