From London’s iconic Shard to the avant-garde landmark of Paris, The Louvre, it’s safe to say that glass has been used in some of the most spectacular and memorable buildings in the world. Hugely versatile, glass has been the architect’s staple for centuries: prized for its durability and adaptability. Architectural glass destined for use in some of the world’s most adventurous creations sets the benchmark for glass worldwide: toughened, laminated, and of unmatched quality.
To that end, architects and architectural firms naturally need glass which is aesthetically pleasing, as well as well-made, durable, safe and low-maintenance, in order to have the freedom to design their projects without constraints.

At Glass & Stainless, we’re dedicated to making your vision a reality. Partner with us, and bring your next project to life.
Why Use Architectural Glass?
As any architect knows, the benefits of using glass for architectural projects are boundless. The transparency or translucency of most glass means natural light is unrestricted through your creation, whilst its durability means it is unlikely to need replacing in the future. The creative license afforded by these qualities have led to some of the world’s most incredible structures through time – from the incredible Crystal Palace of 1951 right through to the iconic Reichstag Dome in Berlin.
It isn’t just public buildings that benefit from this architectural purity – glass allows private properties to be transformed into modern masterpieces. Its classic, timeless look means that glass structures or extensions can be carefully designed to reflect any era or style: from creating futuristic, minimalistic all-glass exteriors to reviving and rejuvenating a period property with glass details and features.
Here at Glass & Stainless, we have been part of hundreds of architectural glass projects from their inception. Being present from the beginning allows our glass experts to work with your architectural firm to ensure we can realise your dream as efficiently and seamlessly as possible – without the need for any costly or last-minute adjustments, which can compromise the integrity of your design. Our team of experts is made up of consultants and project managers who can work with you to bring any vision to life – no matter the scale or the ambition. We can also advise yon on the most suitable type of architectural glass available – so don’t hesitate to ask.
Here at Glass & Stainless, we know what architects need. Our products are high-quality, durable and built to last; while our varied designs mean we’re able to achieve any result you want – from specialist designed or coloured glass to the very best of the simple stuff.
We also believe that support from a glass supplier should extend beyond the product itself: we’re here to lend our skills to your project, no matter how complex. Our expertise will root your design in reality, letting creativity and innovation stay at the forefront – where they should be. Bring your clients the results they need when you consult our architectural experts here at Glass & Stainless; offering design advice, construction guidance and practical assistance to ensure legal compliance.

Our materials are as varied as our experience – with multiple different types of architectural glass available.

Available architectural glass types and glass specifications include:
Our services can begin right at the initial project planning stage and continue until the project is completed. Here at Glass & Stainless, we’re all too happy to help architects and architectural firms with initial design stages, advising on materials and consulting on structural issues.
We can act as the conversation mouthpiece between owner and architect, as well as facilitating discussions between architects and builders to ensure that expectations are managed and met, and that realistic goals are set from the outset of the project.
Our consultation services mean that we can work with you to ensure any issues are dealt with before they even arise. Often, due to the nature and complexity of architectural work, certain features can be overlooked when it comes to structural integrity – leaving the possibility of a last-minute change that might impact the design.
