4 Most Common Uses Of Glass In Architectural Design

Glass is a highly addictive material that architects and designers use in their projects. From a crystalline pyramid of light to a reasonable gallery 1,300 feet in the sky, glass is genuinely an adaptable material for the creative planner.

Architectural glass is really turning out to be very prominent. People are starting to see glass as less delicate and sturdier than before. Glass used to be considered too much of a liability to incorporate as a design feature, but advancement of new types of modern glass has changed that perception.

Below are actual, unedited site photos (please excuse the photo quality for now) of my work husband's recent projects.

Glass is a great choice for doors and partitions, especially for commercial projects. Not only does it allow light to penetrate further into a building but it also reduces the use of artificial lighting.
