The modern design of panoramic glazing – how to make the space as open as possible, and what are the advantages of the house with glass walls.
The design of panoramic glazing has become one of the main tasks in suburban construction. Large floor windows make the space open, bright and visually spacious. Due to it, it is possible to focus on the specific characteristics of the house, give the building a fashionable, modern look, provide exceptional insolation in the rooms. The opening panoramic windows on the ground floor or on the terrace make it possible to practically combine the adjoining recreation area and the interior space.
But in the conceptual design of the panoramic glazing of the cottage from the architectural bureau Joan Puigcorbé, the experts went even further. Consider the project in more detail.
lightness and freedom of living space
The peculiarity of the cottage is that here the panoramic glazing design provides a through view through the house. Against the background of nature, transparent glass makes the building almost weightless – it fits subtly into the landscape. There are no bulky structures, and most of the walls are glass.
Residents literally find themselves not in a closed box, but surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes. This feature of the house favorably affects the ease of the situation – everything contributes to calmness and tranquility. From the windows of social zones – the living room, dining room – offer spectacular views in several directions at once. Even private rooms are made using panoramic glazing. To achieve privacy here, nature and landscape design themselves helped.
The rooms that it is desirable to hide from the view from the outside – the bedrooms – also have a panoramic glazing design. But here the windows are closed with dense greenery, vines surrounding the building. At the same time, from inside the house a striking view of the greenery opens.
spaciousness and lightness of space due to the design of panoramic glazing
Panoramic glazing is provided not only as walling, but also partitions. It turns out that social zones are separated by glass. This increases the comfort of each of them, as residents, being in different spaces, will not interfere with each other. At the same time, the premises remain as open as possible, and it seems that they have no boundaries. Here they got rid of the effect of isolation. And you can increase the privacy of each zone with the help of curtains or screens. Bathrooms, utility rooms and separate rooms are hidden behind traditional walls.
Due to the transparent partitions, each zone receives light not only from windows, but also from neighboring rooms – insolation remains at the highest level throughout the day. The design of panoramic glazing in a one-story country house was also used in the atrium. In the middle of the house they made a small living garden with a glass roof, protecting it from the interior with glass walls. This allowed bringing housing closer to wildlife.
Outdoor terraces in the house are made with awnings – this protects them from rainfall. At the same time, panoramic roofing is also provided in the roof of the structures above the pool – the space receives the maximum amount of light and from there the view of the sky opens. The pool itself is also fenced from the living space with only a glass wall.
Joan Puigcorbé’s panoramic glazing design has reached a new level. Here, glass on the floor does not just enclose the structure, but also separates it inside, eliminating borders.
