The Functionality and Charm of an Interior Glass Wall
The inclusion of glass into a space allows a level of semi-privacy to a space, whereas with a normal partition or wall, in a sealed off room, this would be considered a private space. These semi-private spaces allow others to see inside of a space, and see what others are doing there. This works well in an office environment and serves to encourage productivity.
An Interior Glass Wall may also be used in a residential space, to create a division within a space while maintaining the sense of openness that a glass wall provides. A wall such as this would primarily function, in an interior space, by separating common living areas of the house. It may also be used as a single wall on a four-walled room. The options in a residential space are endless. Consult a designer, or an architect to better feel out how you would use a glass wall to function properly in your own house.
If you are in the planning stages of a commercial or residential construction project, it’s best to first determine where you would want to place your glass walls, and why. You may want to consider how you would like them to function in your space. Now that you are aware of the basic functionality that these walls provide, such as: dividing a space while maintaining openness, allowing the creation of semi-private spaces within an office setting, or just creating an aesthetic charm or appeal, you can better plan how you would like these walls to be implemented specific to your own needs. Having a good sense of what you want, and why, can allow you to instruct your designer accordingly.
