The “Humboldt Project” was recently completed in the Whittier neighborhood of Denver. The modern residential complex of three single-family homes mainly inspires with its cubic architecture and large windows. Not least because of the enormous differences in height along the transport route from the production site in Poland to the installation location, the triple glazing units were fitted with the innovative Swisspacer Air, an intelligent solution for pressure-equalized insulating glass, produced by the Polish glass specialist Vitroterm. https://www.glassmagazine.com/news/2021/swisspacer-air-provides-pressure-equalized-ig-denvers-humboldt-project
