A Glassy Parody: For Glass Replacement in Toronto

September 19th, 2012

At Academy Glass, we have decided to keep you inspired with design and decor options with glass and mirror. Which is why, all this month, we are doing blog posts on beautifully rendered structures from around the world: structures that have been rendered using glass and mirror alone! The next building on our list is The Great Glass House. This one is situated in Carmarthenshire in Wales. Built in 2000, this is one of the few architectural delights in glass that does not stand out, and one that has an understated appeal of its own.

This understated appeal comes from the shape of this structure. A little disc jutting out of the earth, this structure is covered in glass and serves the purpose of filtering light and warmth for the plants it houses. Yes, you are right, this structure is actually home to the National Botanic Garden in Wales. Designed by Norman Foster and Partners between the years 1995 and 2000, this structure is well known for the fact that it is the largest single span glass structure in the world. Now if that is not an architectural feat, then we do not know what is!

Peeping out, seemingly, from the bowels of the Earth and the green expanse of Wales, this structure can realistically speaking, pose a few problems. One of the major problems that it can run into is damage to the glass sheet, in which case the entire structure will need to be replaced and repaired. Yet, at Academy Glass, this is no problem at all. With our expertise and prompt service, should you ever go in for a similar look, glass replacement will not be a problem at all. In fact, we carry out replacement with much ease thanks to our thoroughly professional and not to mention, ever smiling team!

Similarly, window glass repair for your windows and your home poses no problem either. We carry out window glass repair in a smooth and prompt manner to ensure that the headache (if at all), is entirely ours. So call us or visit us today for a unique look like the one discussed above, or for any repair or replacement related issues.
