Magnificent window designs in residential architecture
Modern glass architecture in a home residence can be very powerful, especially if you have picturesque natural surroundings to your home.
As we see here, why not bring that nature in with wall to wall glass?
It’s also good to have a lot of reflective surfaces to go along with the glass in one’s home. The way the light flows in and spills over the wood flooring sets off the room, even in the evening.
And while it is great to have nature come pouring into one’s home, it’s also pretty from an exterior reflective standpoint. As you can see here, the reflection of the sky and trees bounce off the glass walls of this home, and give it an amazing look.
Don’t stop there. Having clearstories are a great way to add light into one’s home as well. You need your vitamin D, why not get it with the help of some clearstories (as seen above) or skylights?
A lot of modern architects have been turning to stylized windows as an architectural element – as seen above. A fan of Tetris, anyone? These serve as windows while giving the home some flare. Another angle can be seen below.
The beauty of being able to cut custom-sized glass pieces for architecture is that you get homes like this.

While the average person cannot afford their own architect to build a dream home, these pictures still serve as a reminder of the beauty that comes with glass in residential architecture.
