With plans of its completion estimated after 2026, it is truly a ground-breaking basilica that has already stood the test of time.

Name: Lantern House
City: New York
Country: USA

When you’re surrounded by the icons of architecture in the heart of New York it takes a unique idea to stand out from the rest - and the Lantern House does just that. Rather than opting for tried and tested glass apartment blocks seen all over the Manhattan area, this new residential project takes advantage of the use of three-dimensional façade bay windows emulating the shape of a lantern offering residents stunning views of the Hudson River. Taking inspiration from British Victorian houses, these lantern-shaped windows are enriched by the surrounding copper-colored frames, coated in an Interpon D3000 hyperdurable powder coating, in a color and finish that complements the area’s historical past.

The famous architect Renzo Piano wanted the building to be a shard of crystal with a presence of light that would almost taper to nothing.

Name: Ambassade de Canada
City: Paris
Country: France

When relocating the Canadian Embassy and Cultural Centre to the 8th Arrondissement of Paris in view of the Champs Élysée and the world's largest fashion houses, you have to elegantly blend history and modernity with a touch of French style. The architects have done just that. They have created a monumental four-meter deep, double-height entrance using traditional Canadian Tyndall stone. On either side, rising to the first floor, panels in a decorative vegetal motif are lacquered with finely textured Interpon D2525 Futura Manganese Sablé. Futura helps blend the modernity of the new façade with the building's historic Hussain architecture – and a touch of joie de vivre!

Name: Porta Fira Hotel
City: Barcelona
Country: Spain

The strikingly red Hotel Porta Fira in the coastal city of Barcelona won the Emporis architecture prize in 2010. The iconic building rises 110 meters up into Barcelona's skyline, a city blessed for its art and architecture. Renowned Japanese architect Toyo Ito was inspired by the organic form of a lotus flower to create a contorted cylinder which gives all the rooms excellent views. A façade of red metal tubes also affords the building an intricately textured appearance. Interpon’s D1036 powder coating will help preserve the beauty of the building against the maritime weather and searing heat of the Barcelona sun with the same resilience for which the lotus flower is revered.

Name: Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center SNFCC
City: Athens
Country: Greece

Greece is known the world over as the cradle of Western Culture. And Athens is its heart. When the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) opened the combined National Library of Greece and Greek National Opera in 2017, it had to uphold a nation's fierce pride in its ancient history and tradition of learning. The building was conceived as a dislodged piece of the earth’s crust emerging out of the ground, and the vast, suspended roof canopy appears as a cloud hovering above the library and opera building. To ensure the SNFCC remains the pride of Athens, the architects chose Interpon’s D3020 powder coatings in grey, white and a bright grey metallic finish, knowing they would shield the building from Athens’ harsh coastal climate and stormy weather, and supporting its platinum LEED certification to ensure its green building credentials.

Creating the Wukesong Ice Sports Center in Beijing meant more than providing a training ground for the 2022 winter Olympic athletes. The 1900-capacity stadium was built as a future legacy of winter sports for the people of China. Its multi-colored latticed façade is designed so that as sunlight filters through, it evokes the crystal patterns and cracks of ice and snow on the ground and an emotional connection to residents of Beijing. The architects chose Interpon’s powder coatings to provide the exact colors needed to create these ice flowers and to protect the building for future generations of Ice Hockey Olympians.
