This project presented an exciting design challenge: to use glass as a dynamic building material and break from the idea of glass used only as a "window" between interior and exterior spaces. Collaborating with the Client in the new venture of a “Design Center” concept created many opportunities for innovative uses of glass.
This Chicago-style loft took on a whole new look once laminated glass and textured glass work surfaces dominated the space. Glass tile on the floor leads the customer to a metal and glass front coffee kiosk. Glass ceiling tiles float above a seating area surrounded by a glass railing system. A glass barn-door separates the public area from employee office spaces.
The many forms of glass update this classic space into a modern showpiece for the Client’s new direction.
