Mystic Lake Center features dynamic glass from SageGlass®, a global company headquartered in Faribault, Minnesota. SageGlass is the pioneer of the world’s smartest electrochromic glass and the ultimate connector between the built and natural environments.
One of many advanced technologies incorporated into Mystic Lake Center, SageGlass tints on demand to optimize daylight, reduce glare, and manage heat – all while maintaining unobstructed views of the outdoors. More than 11,000 square feet of SageGlass will adorn the western façade of Mystic Lake Center, giving visitors a constant view of the outdoors and protection from glare – without the need for blinds, shades, or other solar controls.
“Floor to ceiling SageGlass will provide uncompromised views of the surrounding scenery,” said Alan McLenaghan, CEO of SageGlass. “We are proud to provide this Minnesota project with the foremost solution for solar control and give guests a dynamic, comfortable experience.”
Access to natural daylight and views of nature have a positive impact on building occupants. Visitors to Mystic Lake Center will be able to comfortably experience the benefits of the outdoors, including stress reduction, enhanced creativity, and an improved sense of well-being.
By blocking glare and heat from the sun, SageGlass will also help reduce the building’s overall energy demand. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Saint-Gobain, SageGlass is backed by more than 350 years of building science expertise.
