STARPHIRE Glass Revives Office Building in Beverly Hills
In Beverly Hills, Calif., architect Hagy Belzberg and glass fabricator Pulp Studio used PPG’s STARPHIRE® glass to transform a three-story office building into a showcase for Gores Group, a global private equity firm. The building’s signature two-layer façade combines carved limestone, custom-printed interlayers, and slumped glass panels bent from Starphire glass to create a multi-textured surface that interacts during the day with sunlight and at night with brightly speckled LED lights, turning the structure into an ever-changing spectacle of color and light.
Bernard Lax, chief executive officer of Pulp Studio, said his firm uses Starphire glass for about 70% of its production. “We always specify Starphire glass for projects where aesthetic is the driving force to maintain color neutrality,” he said.
