Extraordinary Curtain Walls
The company continues to grow at pace and in 1965 develops a new type of curtain wall for Geneva airport, using thermal breaks and insulating infill seals. In 1971 the company installs the largest insulating glass panes produced to this date, at the United Nations Office in Geneva. After a series of other outstanding and high-profile façade projects in Switzerland, the company wins its first international project in 1973, realising a façade system for Nestlé in Barcelona using extra-thin transoms and ventilated panels. In the 1980s Félix Constructions is active in the Middle East and realises a series of prestigious projects in Syria and Iraq.
