SNAPCHAT, ONE OF THE BIGGEST SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFLORMS HAS TRANSFORMED THEIR OFFICE SPACE WITH MODERNUS IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN TORONTO.
Snapchat Inc. is a multimedia, mobile application that allows people to send pictures to family and friends that disappear after only a short period of time. It is an increasingly popular application that has grown immensely since its inital release in 2011. Snapchat currently has over 150 million daily active users all around the world.
Working alongside Salwood Contractors and KFA Architects, we were able to transform their meeting and phone rooms into creative and unique spaces with outstanding acoustics throughout the new office space. we were able to meet the required specifications by designers with the Modernus double glazed system with sleek pocket doors that were instealled with a clear anodized finish.
Modernus offers elegant, flexible glass systems that are specifically developed to be easy to install and easy to specify. It is effortlessly configurable as a single OR double glaze system and offers swing, sliding and pocket door options as well as being fully compatible. It’s sophisticated flexibility allows for an easy transition between the single and double glaze features.
It has the highest STC rating of any glass partitioning system, single glazed up to STC 39 and double glazed up to STC 49, depending on the thickness of the glass. Modernus has 19 standard and 250 custom extrusions available – the largest number of options available on the market – any style, any door type! All door types have full gaskets at every gap to minimize sound transmission keeping the STC rating the highest possible!
The Snapchat office in downtown Toronto is currently undergoing further renovations for Phase II and will be estimated to be completed later in 2017.
