Normally, we, the people, without titles, are always trying to preserve the nature. That is why, we want less skyscrapers to build for so many reasons. To illustrate, think about the reason which is the easiest to see. We all know that skyscrapers have a glass façade and glasses reflect the sunlight. That reflection causes temperature rise, also damaging the atmosphere. However, I am going to talk about other buildings that have a mirror façades.


Generally the buildings are located in nature, not on streets. Thus, they become one with nature. In addition, some of them can show themselves like their floors are suspended in air because of the mirror line on their façade.

You can use the mirror partial as well. If the location is okay with it, partial mirror on your façade make this part invisible as we can see below.

In this project by SATA we can realize that first floor is hidden by nature, architects wanted to show ground floor and the rest is reflection of the nature.


The final project I am going to show you is one of my favorites. Designed by Marcin Tomaszewski, located in Warsaw.

As you can see below, also as I mentioned in second paragraph, mirror has multiple function in that project. First, it separates the floors, first floor looks like suspended in air by means of mirror line.

Second, approximately half of the building is hidden in nature.



I have showed you a few effects of mirror façade, but there are so many, of course, in a good way. Keep going on to preserve nature and do not hesitate to make it the starring character of your own project.
