Kuraray provided their Trosifol® Sound Control solution for inner-city architectural project in Brooklyn.
Marvel Architects desired a solution that would allow them to incorporate a substantial glazed façade on a residential development, whilst protecting residents from localised noise levels at the Pierhouse development at the transformed Brooklyn Heights waterfront.
The building has two primary faces: one that mirrors the traditional brownstone and the other with its significant glazed area/
Traffic density on roads, in the air and on rails has increased the noise nuisance for local residents, as a result designers of inner-city developments focus on noise mitigation in building design.
As a result the industry has seen a rise in the use of glazing for structural and aesthetic purposes as well as to alleviate noise.
Trosifol® SC has delivered Marvel Architects, JE Berkowitz (the laminators) and Alubon (the glazing contractor) multiple benefits compared to other multilayer acoustic products and glazing formulations in terms of performance, fabrication and aesthetics.
