Designed by Bogle Architects, the ELI Beamlines facility is a European laser research centre located in Dolní Břežany on the outskirts of Prague. The 28,000 square-metre complex offers unique sources of intense radiation and particle beams that enable groundbreaking research in the fields of physics, materials science, biomedical research and laboratory astrophysics.

The complex consists of three main buildings: an administrative building, a multi-functional centre and a laser research building. These buildings are capable of accommodating 300 people. The physical links between the three respective sub-building wings facilitates communication between the people in each area, creating an atmosphere of an academic campus within the complex.

The modern, natural appearance of the complex is reflected in its intelligent use of glass. The architect selected Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral® (SN) 70/37 on Guardian ExtraClear float glass for the glazed façade, windows and impressive-looking atrium. This coated solar control glass provides a combination of high solar protection and exceptional light transmission (70%) on a neutral-looking glass, which ensures sufficient natural light is allowed to reach virtually all areas of the building.
