Glass Farm in Schijndel completed

« Back

Brakel Atmos realised the glass outer shell, comprising around 1000 jigsaw pieces

On Thursday 17 January a unique project, designed by architect Winny Maas from MVRDV, was completed: the Glass Farm in Schijndel (NL). It was a remarkable project that presented a Brakel Atmos with a double challenge. The physical transparency: the glass exterior of the farm, made up of around a thousand unique jigsaw pieces (window panes). Brakel Atmos created these pieces and installed the puzzle. The project engineering, logistics and assembly all had to be spot-on. And that required communicative transparency: clear agreements and good coordination with the other parties. A double challenge therefore, the result of which had to be a world-class farm made from glass.

Our contribution

Bart van Langen, project leader at Brakel Atmos: "The Glass Farm presented us with a new challenge. We created and installed the entire glass outer shell, including panels, doors and glass chimneys. Water tightness, energy efficiency and transparency are important requirements for a project like this, which is why we decided to use high-quality structural glazing with excellent insulating properties. The glass outer shell is made up of around 1.000 panes, which together cover a surface area of 1,700 m2. Prints were applied to the panes using a modern technique and combine to give the image of a traditional farm. We also produced the fire-resistant panels, structural glued glass doors, facade and roof grilles and hung windows. "The Glass Farm really lives up to its name. All of the non-glass sections are fitted with glass strips. There‘s not a door or window frame to be seen from the outside. Even the chimney is made from glass...
