Luxury Apartments Complex - The Unique Tower - High UV Exposure

Quito, Ecuador

Mixed-use 24-story residential tower in Quito, Ecuador by architect Carlos Zapata. 

It is located on the northern edge of La Carolina Park and is one of the city’s tallest buildings with the communal pool and lounge area, as well as a series of vertical gardens. The new tower was made to embrace the striking views of the Andes mountains and volcanoes and the surrounding valleys and the busy streets of Quito. 

The project was designed to be a visually porous structure. This is Zapata’s first project with Quito developer Uribe Schwarzkopf. https://www.dezeen.com/2020/11/24/unique-carlos-zapata-unique-uribe-schwarzkopf/

The building features a facade made with glass and aluminum panels, a sculptural envelope that folds to optimise light and privacy within the apartments.

The tower was also made to generate the smallest possible impact when it comes to the use of non-renewable resources, such as electrical energy saving, use of potable water, collecting and reusing rainwater, water treatment, and irrigation systems.

Amdeksa S.G./Ecuador contributed to its unique design with the spectacular laminated glass design with evguard® UV-380 and evguard® MPE .

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a part of the solar radiation spectrum, with the wavelength falling between 100 and 400 nm. Since UV radiation has pros and cons based on the field of application, laminated safety glasses at different applications need different UV cut-off to fulfill the requirements. In addition to the evguard® laminating film, Folienwerk Wolfen GmbH also offers evguard® laminating film UV-380 with increased UV cut off to provide higher protection against UV radiation.

evguard® laminating film UV-380 is most suitable to minimize the 

amount of natural UV light to pass through. Even though the standard evguard® laminating film is certified for EN 12543-4, evguard® laminating film UV-380 would be the best choice for some special applications such as to protect the UV sensitive inlays within the glass laminate from discoloration or fading.
