This Warsaw Hotel Beats the Cold with Warm Edge Spacer Bars

The Nobu Hotel Warsaw that opened in Poland’s capital aims this past August combines Art Deco style with Space Age triple-glazed windows that offer high insulation values through the use of warm edge spacer bars.

The bars, made by Swisspacer, consist of a highly insulating plastic composite material that minimizes the loss of heat, thus preventing both cold bridges and heat loss.

The hotel has 117 rooms and suites and features a facade made of crushed glass. It was designed by the Polish architecture firm Medusa Group in combination with California’s Studio PCH.

Formed in 1998, Swisspacer is part of Saint-Gobain Glass Solutions.
