The client wanted an absolutely natural living experience, with the roof carrying enough soil to plant a variety of plants.
The roots would eventually make an interesting pattern as they wormed along the glass surface!
The glass has all been treated with Clearshield Protect which provides a protection against the harmful effects of any alkalines in the damp soils.
Clearshield is 100% non-toxic when properly applied and cured onto glass.
Due to this unique feature, the architect had peace of mind in specifying Clearshield for this “Glass House” situated in one of the most scenic areas of South Africa.
