The Importance of Glass in Modern Architecture

17th Feb 2015


The prevalence of architectural glass in the design world is becoming increasingly more recognisable. With thermal, visual and lighting benefits, it’s easy to see why. Legendary architect Mies van der Rohe once prophesised: “The use of glass does compel us to go new ways,” and the potential with the material is truly limitless.

At Diverso, we look to offer our clients absolute exclusivity through our own unique range of stunning glass products. Glass balustradesfeature glass staircases and glass balconies are just some of the breathtaking solutions that we design, manufacture and install; as we continue to carry out impeccable work both commercially and domestically.

We provide home and business owners with the means to make a contemporary architectural statement at their property; and always ensure that our work fits seamlessly within the overall design scheme of a building. Whether the commission is for a new or existing build, you can be sure that whichever of our architectural glass features you choose; it will emanate class, elegance and style.

Transmitting Light Internally With Glass Staircases, Glass Balustrades and Glass Doors

Internally, our glass staircases, glass balustrades and glass doors work perfectly as showcase property features. They can be strategically designed to blend within any number of interior design schemes and are tailor-made to add that true wow-factor to a property. Our interior glass features are also ideal for maximising the distribution of natural light; which has been linked to a number of health benefits.

For property exteriors, our structural glass balconies and glass balconies are equally impressive. Each can be carefully designed to embrace the surroundings of your home in a wonderfully-panoramic way; seamlessly extending from your property to blend with the outdoors. Our exterior features will ensure your home radiates as a beacon of design excellence in your area.

Form and Functionality Equally Important With Our Architectural Glass Features

Whilst we specialise in producing visually stunning pieces, we also feel it’s equally important that the service we provide work practically. Whichever of our glass features you choose, you can be sure that we will intelligently consider both form and functionality in equal measure.

We consistently do this through the implementation of high-tech 2D and 3D CAD drawings. These enable us to help clients visualise any one of our glass features in-situ; and help us to ensure that we exactly fulfil your requirements.
