Glass. Something we only used to think about when it came to windows, but as the modern architecture progress in a new direction, glass is being used to replace doors and even walls for a variety of reasons.
Using glass to a greater extent in houses primarily affects the natural illumination and improves it drastically. It is no surprise that transparent or even translucent glass is going to allow much more light than an opaque structure such as a wall or even a door.
Another advantage of using glass is that is can be catered to specific needs. For instance, for colder regions, particular glass can be used that are much more insulating and still provide illumination. And similarly, for hotter climates, specially designed to conduct heat and make the inner climate of the room naturally.
Glass can also make it seem more open and spacious compared to brick and concrete and not to mention the views that it allows of the surroundings. Especially with the house containing lawn or waterworks and miniature gardens, the glass could be the perfect window in the life outside for the viewers inside.
Now while talking about glass structures, the question arises about security and potentially durability. So let’s discuss the security associated with glass walls and doors. The main thing to keep in mind is that, do not think that the usual glass is used to create glasshouses, as for windows. Glass walls are much thicker than a conventional window, in addition, they are made from materials that have been specifically processed in order to be as durable and as safe as possible. This type of glass can be made of wood, aluminum, plastic or steel and they come in a large variety such as steel coated, laminated, hardened or even Plexiglas can be used for the purpose of glasshouses.
This means, now glass can be seen from a different perspective and be used to see a whole new perspective!
