Located in a green cottage town in the suburbs of Kyiv, this house has become a true oasis of peace. The frameless glazing technology allowed creating a seamless space between the interior and nature outside the window, letting in natural light.
Frameless insulated glass units with higher stiffness reduced heat transfer through the glass, resulting in increased energy efficiency and comfort. The technology involves using large structurally strong glass panels that do not require additional aluminum frames or supports.
In 2022, the first international presentation of Aestech technologies occurred during the World Architecture Festival. It was the first time the world witnessed the capabilities of frameless glazing technology based on insulated glass units with higher stiffness. Aestech impressed festival attendees with its booth, featuring a massive all-glass arch as the central element.
In 2023, Aestech is once again introducing The Futureglass Prize at the World Architecture Festival 2023.
This special award at the festival will recognize the best projects using glass and innovative methods of its application in architecture. One of the seven projects shortlisted for The Futureglass Prize in 2023 will receive this special award.
