The year 2020 is the beginning of a new decade and in this context CNN Style published an article an article with the 20 most anticipated buildings set to shape our cities and architecture itself. The first reference of the article is about an impressive building that was equipped with ALUMIL’s advanced aluminium systems, the "Vancouver House" located in Vancouver, Canada, designed by the famous architecture office Bjarke Ingels Group.
The extraordinary curved skyscraper "Vancouver House" looks like a notional turbine. It arises up from its triangular base, making a "dance" movement, striving to reach the highest levels where it becomes squared and imposing. Seemingly asymmetrical openings per floor, eventually formulate a single face which resembles a built wall. Covered by glass surfaces, they ensure the high energy efficiency demands (LEED - Platinum award). Fine, clear, white lines of minimal character compose the interior, allowing natural light to underline the interior aesthetics and at the same time, serve as a natural link between internal and external space. ALUMIL’s system used to fulfil the high aesthetics and energy requirements of the project, was the outstanding lift and slide systems SUPREME S700 S700.
