Make a statement entrance with a glass porch
Sometimes it can be difficult to visual just how much difference structural glass will actually make to a project. These ‘before and after’ images of recent projects in bespoke structural glass might inspire your designs.
Structural glass porches can be added to the exterior of the building, provide an interior lobby or even adapt an existing porch to provide a secure and visually appealing entrance.
Clever design and use of concealed fixings can produce a frameless result with minimal physical or visual impact to the original building …. or a contemporary and stylish porch that makes a significant architectural statement.
