The Challenge

When planning the innovative seven-story ALPHA Building, Stephan Häusler, the company’s owner and property developer, actively participated in its creation. While crafting the vision for the space, he carefully considering the needs of future tenants. With this goal in mind, he enlisted the architect Niels Roefs, who was tasked with creating spaces conducive to the comfort and well-being of occupants while preserving the overall aesthetics of the building. Additionally, they collaborated to incoporate nature into the project, with particular emphasis on the surrounding park.


The Solution

To create this unique building that would offer an enhanced workplace experience, the owner and architect cleverly incorporated innovative and intelligent solutions. These included SageGlass Harmony® smart windows, which tint and clear according to the weather conditions and occupants’ needs to provide solar and glare control. The smart windows eliminated the need for blinds, maintaining unobstructed views of the surrounding park. Additionally, the combination of Harmony – the only smart window on the market capable of gradient tinting – and the Neutral Clear coating gives the building an incomparable aesthetic appeal.


The Benefits

SageGlass smart windows allow ALPHA Building tenants to enjoy exceptional comfort in their work and relaxation areas. Whatever the weather conditions, occupants have a direct view of the park, and can even see the mountains and lake from the 4th floor. Moreover, since the smart windows control the level of light and heat entering the building, the system decreases the need for air-conditioning is reduced. Finally, the Neutral Clear coating gives the building an even, luminous appearance, as it reflects the surrounding nature.
