Europe‘s tallest building dominates the north of St. Petersburg, directly on Neva Bay. Whilst from a distance the sheer size of the Lakhta Tower emanates the excellence of the building, directly at its foot two glass multifunctional buildings and a long, curving lobby bed the 462 meter tower into a harmonically undulating ensemble and give it an architectural basis. The gigantic dimensions are reflected by the entrance areas of these multifunctional buildings. With a total of 326 glass fins in the north and south blocks as well as 78 glass fins in the entry archway, sedak (Gersthofen, Germany) provided the structural framework for the large-area glass façades. Among them were the longest laminates used in any current construction worldwide.
