OKALUX... The Art of Illumination
OKALUX insulating glass with capillary slabs diffuses daylight into the depths of the interior while providing excellent solar heat protection, glare protection… and privacy. The light transmission and SHGC (solar heat gain coefficient) values of the glass can be individually adjusted to suit the requirements of any building ranging from gymnasiums and museums to this exclusive Hudson Guesthouse designed by Janson Goldstein Architecture.
Notice how elegantly the glass wall maximizes the building’s transparency and views: “The illumination characteristics of OKALUX is like no other material. It feels like the glass actually ‘holds’ the light, giving almost a weightlessness to it,” says the architect Hal Goldstein, partner at Janson Goldstein.
Whether for use in residential, commercial or institutional buildings, OKALUX is a sustainable daylighting solution that adds user comfort and an attractive appearance to any design. A mix of OKALUX light diffusing glass and ordinary clear glass provides the home owner with both privacy and open views, as seen in this meadow-surrounded guesthouse.
