Commercial glass can be used to construct entire buildings of any shape or size.
Over the past couple of decades, glass has become more and more popular as a material used in building design, whether it’s in commercial or residential glass structures. That’s in part because, as the Glass Association of North America says, “glass is a dynamic and important part of residential and commercial building design. Its increased use in windows, doors, skylights, curtain walls and double glass facades illustrates the importance of glass in today’s construction environment as a medium for natural lighting and energy conservation.”
And it’s flexible in all uses – from the basically square or rectangular boxlike buildings one sees everywhere to the straight-lined glass pyramid that greets visitors to the Louvre to what one blogger calls the “oddly warped” Dancing House in Prague, designed as a tribute to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The Dancing House, also known as the “Drunk House,” represents the curves of their bodies as the two actors danced.
If you find those designs inspiring and want to create your own memorable glass structure – whether it’s an entire commercial building or a unique window in your home – you want to call Don’s Mobile Glass in Modesto, Turlock, Manteca and Merced. Don’s has 55-plus years’ experience in the Central Valley with all type of glass, from windshields to large commercial buildings to small residential desires, like a shower door or window. We can work with you or your designer/architect to create a one-of-a-kind glass piece that will prompt ooohs and aaaahs from passersby and visitors.
