The company was also unhappy about how the shading system impacted the building’s sleek design aesthetic. And when the shades were open in the evenings, nearby residents complained of light pollution.
When the time came to build the second phase, the media technology company, Sandhill and Carlyle decided to install View Smart Windows to address these issues. This decision saved Sandhill $1 million by eliminating the blinds. For occupants, View Smart Windows provide a more comfortable environment that mitigates glare, maximizes daylight, and reduces nighttime light pollution. Most importantly, this high-tech feature is a physical demonstration of the company’s values of curiosity and innovation, which helps them attract talent in the competitive Silicon Valley hiring market.
Founded in 1988, Sand Hill Property Company has developed several billion dollars worth of real estate projects and is now recognized as one of the most reputable and successful real estate investment and development companies in the Silicon Valley.
