The new Thompson Hotel in Nashville is a curved skyscraper featuring 60,000 square feet of high-performing solar control low-E glass from AGC Glass North America. Designed by Nashville’s Hastings Architecture, the luxury hotel boats floor-to-ceiling windows with glazing fabricated by Insulite Glass and installed by Pitman Glass.

The Thompson Hotel utilizes AGC’s Energy Select 28 in a clear anodized curtainwall inside the hotel. On the ground level, the adjoined Marsh House restaurant is lined with Energy Select 40 in a bronze framing.

“The color rendition of the glass, in concert with its low reflectivity and consistency, made these products a perfect fit for the hotel’s spaces,” says Matt Spaulding, associate with Hastings.

Energy Select 28 and Energy Select 40 maintain a visible light transmission levels of 62 percent and 69 percent, respectively.

“AGC’s floor-to-ceiling glass brings a lot of light into the guest rooms, while maintaining privacy for the interior and a beautiful blue-to-gray color on the exterior,” says Spaulding.
