Google’s offices, New York: Still dreaming about the perfect window?


How would you imagine the perfect window? What would be its key features? If you need a small “dose” of inspiration, you could think about the advanced casement window system SUPREME S91 of ALUMIL, specially designed for passive houses. A customized solution of this particular window was chosen by Google Inc. for the renovation of its offices in New York at the 111 Eighth Avenue, one of the largest buildings in town.

Google wanted to improve the aesthetic value and the energy efficiency of its building and thus needed a window that would incorporate these essential characteristics, while simultaneously being sturdy and extremely durable.

The solution which ALUMIL provided, a leading force in the creation of architectural aluminum systems, with presence in over 60 countries on all continents, was exactly what Google was dreaming about! Specifically, the innovative R&D department of the company, developed a tailor made version of the excellent casement window SUPREME S91.

SUPREME S91 belongs to ALUMIL SUPREME series and was specially designed in order to meet the high requirements of passive houses (certified by the German Passive House Institute). It is ideal for heavy duty, insulated casement windows with high security level. The system has excellent performances in terms of thermal insulation, watertightness and noise reduction as well as flexibility and ease of fabrication.

Moreover, ALUMIL developed special shading louvers with aerodynamic design, which were harmoniously mounted on the window, offering besides shading, a beautiful three-dimensional look to the building’s envelope.


With more than 30 years of experience and 1.700 employees, ALUMIL is one of the most advanced companies globally in the design and production of aluminium architectural systems with state-of-the art production lines in its 18 factories over South Eastern Europe. It offers an impressively wide range of various aluminium systems for Patio, French, Bi-fold, entrance and interior doors, windows, curtain walls, pergolas, shading systems, wall cladding, railings and much more. Moreover, limitless customization options are possible when it comes to design & surface treatment.

ALUMIL produces high quality aluminium systems which are designed and developed in the Group’s advanced R&D Department and then tested and certified by internationally accredited certification institutes and laboratories, such as Ift Rosenheim (Germany), A.A.M.A (USA), Instituto Jordano (Italy), CSTB (France), ATG (Belgium) etc.


So when it comes to windows, choose ALUMIL and dream… “Miles Ahead”.
