In terms of enhancing the existing interior of your home, our glass flooring system is a more desired product in modern and contemporary home design.
Structural glass floors not only make a phenomenal design statement and focal feature but also realises a practical and functional purpose – allowing light to be transmitted through a structure, of which we frequently design, engineer and install glass walk-on floors and bridges for precisely this purpose.
Our knowledge and technical expertise in structural glass design and construction make Glass Design & Build London the ideal choice for Walk On Glass Floor Installation, bringing stunning glass walk-on flooring into your home where you crave more natural light and to utilise available space.
Our bespoke structural glass flooring provides a magnificent focal point in any location of the property, and it provides remarkable, unparalleled natural light penetration to any lower levels and especially suited to basement areas, gallery landings and drive over light wells – which makes our glass floor system a unique and optimal choice to maximise the feeling of light and space in any multi-storey home.
From our years of exclusive and creative design expertise at Glass Design & Build London, we appreciate glass in architecture and interior design as unparalleled in its creation of beauty and functionality – our glass floor installations are designed and technically engineered for multitude of purposes for your everyday living.
To give the ultimate minimalistic design to our glass flooring systems, we can use structural glass beams made from extra-extra clear glass which will provide a total clarity to the structure and bestow a phenomenal effect.
If privacy between floors is required, we can provide various levels of obscurity so that rooms are kept private without losing any loss of light – for example the glass can be sandblasted, acid etched or we can even incorporate smart technologies within the glazing which makes it switchable from clear to opaque electronically controlled by either a switch or a remote.
With ever increasing responsibility on construction companies to be ‘green’ by using more sustainable products, the environmental importance and benefits of structural glass becomes more and more apparent.
Our bespoke structural glass floor systems can be designed to included enhanced thermal and acoustic properties providing incredible insulation, which can help lessen energy consumption by reducing the level of artificial lighting that is required within the property. This is not only environmentally and financially valuable to the homeowner but can also be beneficial for both mental and physical health properties that only natural light can provide.
Buildings are measured by their energy consumption these days, but now also on their whole life-cycle impact. Glass products are manufactured from raw materials which are environmentally friendly, non pollutant and are in abundance which in-turn is recyclable.
We design, engineer and install our bespoke glass floor systems for a multitude of purposes such as light wells, for display purposes, they can even be driven over and also be blast proof – these are just a few of the options that we can incorporate but our specialty is our extremely large over-sized structural glass flooring which is not only visually impressive but we have the technical ability and expertise to design and engineer the whole floor area to be completely glazed which makes structural glass the ideal product of choice to maximise the penetration and distribution of natural light down through to the levels below and beyond.
From one of our recent installations in Knightsbridge, an industry insider viewed the project and commented –
“This project is not just a very good installation, it’s actually a work of art due to the exceptional level of attention to detail, giving fantastic effect to the kitchen in the basement below – simply stunning”.
What provides frameless glass with unparalleled beauty is its simplicity. Glass Design & Build London is renowned for the bespoke frameless glazing and architectural structures that we design, engineer and install as it is our field of speciality. Frameless glazing describes all manor of elements such as glass flooring, glass canopies, atriums, staircases, frameless double glazed windows, frameless double glazed doors and many other applications as our bespoke frameless glazing system is extremely versatile.
Our modern and contemporary frameless glazing systems are the ideal solution of maximising the degree of pure natural daylight transmitted throughout your home, whilst creating a unique and stunning aesthetically pleasing architectural feature.
Our bespoke systems are designed to create and achieve a comprehensive flush and seamless finish. The frameless structural glazed units can be reinforced by using structural glass beams or in the situation of a glass to glass corner, reinforced through the adjoining glass itself. The frameless glazed units can be supported and retained by using our exclusive and unique stainless steel and hidden fixings that have been designed by and engineered for Glass Design & Build London.
The installation of frameless glazing systems has grown exponentially in the past few years amongst homeowners and the addition of frameless glass to your property can have a number of benefits such as creating a seamless flow between your outside space and the beautiful interior decoration of your home providing you with the perfect link to nature.
A fantastic addition to any property, our roof light systems are an excellent approach to maximise light ingress into your home.
Glass Design & Build London can install a roof light into your home that creates an entirely new perspective making them a great addition and highly adaptable to suit any room or space.
Just one element of our range of home glazing solutions to help increase and distribute the amount of natural light and ventilation available, our glass roof lights can be designed, engineered and installed to your requirements.
From fixed flat roof lights and structural walk-on roof light windows, electrically operated hinged or sliding models through to frameless pyramid roof lights and glass roof lanterns, we have a system that is bespoke and can meet the required specifications to enhance your project.
Our bespoke rooflight systems are extremely popular with clients wishing to maintain their privacy whilst wanting to make the most of the natural daylight with the feel good benefits this brings – options can include heat and rain sensors, incorporated blinds and our bespoke LED lighting and be fully remote controlled. Also there are a range of upgrade options available such as – increased thermal and acoustic properties with triple glazing or specialist interlayers, easy-clean coatings and coloured tints to enhance your new roof light system.
The principal reason to install glass roof lights within a property is to increase the level of natural daylight, but this isn’t the only way our rooflights can enhance a property – opening rooflights can provide a number of other benefits which make them the ultimate option for your new extension project. They can improve the natural flow of ventilation which helps to keep fresh air circulating throughout the interior which in-turn provides a greater level of comfort for yourselves.
Warm air naturally rises which means by allowing the warm air to escape, our rooflights can actually help to keep the interior of your property cooler in the temperate summer months.
This cooling effect can be enhanced further with the addition of solar control coatings that when added to the glass help reduce the solar heat gain and glare from direct sunlight.
And in reverse, during the colder months our rooflights are designed so that the glass has low U-values and low-emissivity (low-E) which ensures a high level of insulation therefore making it less able for heat to escape to keep your home snug and warm.
Glass roofing is becoming a popular, and sought-after design feature in modern and contemporary property design.
At Glass Design & Build London, we have an expansive range of glass roofing products with various specifications and options, and with advancements in modern glazing technologies and production processes we can design, engineer and install our glass roofing systems with virtually infinite uses and possibilities.
Our glass roofs can be designed to fit into almost any space and be engineered to have either fixed or opening configurations such as lift or slide open for example and can be operated manually or by remote control.
As part of our range of home glazing solutions, our glass roofing products are one of the most effective ways to help increase the influx of natural daylight into an area below by providing a direct link to the sky above, which in-turn can bestow additional health benefits for mindfulness and wellbeing.
Glass roofs, depending upon the style and design can add a luxurious and stylistic aesthetic to your home which is one of the primary stipulations for our clients.
With the addition of toughened or laminated glazing within our minimalist frames our bespoke engineered systems are sure to create a design focal piece in almost any home or space making them the ideal and perfectly resplendent addition to any given home.
As mentioned, there are various specifications and options that can be incorporated into your new bespoke glass roofing system and this indeed applies to the glazing element as there is a wide capacity for customisation in the glazing we install depending upon your needs and requirements, and can be incorporated together in many applications.
Toughened glass is a standard as far as safety is concerned within any structural design as it is much stronger and more resistant to breaking than standard glass.
Akin to toughened glass, laminated glazing is utilised as a preventative measure. It is made up of layers of glass with interlayers of special film that give the overall glazed unit its strength so if the glass was to be damaged it would remain in one piece and hold together rather than shattering into pieces.
In addition, special coatings can be applied to the glazed units that lower the U-value and low-emissivity (low-E) which ensures a high level of insulation by regulating the amount of heat that passes either way through the glass which helps improve the overall energy efficiency of your home. Our bespoke glass roof systems are extremely popular with clients wishing to maintain their privacy whilst wanting to make the most of the natural daylight – options can include heat and rain sensors, incorporated blinds and our bespoke LED lighting and be fully remote controlled, electric smart glass – so the glazing can go from transparent to opaque by the press of a button.
Also there are a further range of upgrade options available such as – increased thermal and acoustic properties (sound proofing) with triple glazing or specialist interlayers, easy-clean coatings which is hydrophilic and can be photo catalytic, coloured tints to reduce the solar glare and even photochromic tints which will automatically darken with the brightness of the sun to enhance your new glass roof system.
The incorporation of our bespoke glass screens within contemporary interior design is becoming increasingly popular and can completely transform your property.
Our glass screen systems are bespoke and uniquely designed to each individual project which create and form a clean, clear partition between living spaces and areas of your property, providing an excellent solution for a broken plan layout.
A glass screen cleverly divides up the room without losing the natural light or blocking any sight lines and our bespoke interior glass partitions can include multiple panels, so there is no limit on size. The glass panels can be designed, engineered and manufactured to have a completely frameless design or they can have very slimline frames if preferred.
Glass screens are widely used in the commercial sector and are therefore highly sought after by our clients that desire an effortless luxury in the home.
We also offer upgrades to our bespoke glass screen systems such as RAL coloured back-painting, screen printing, acid etching through to laminated silk and gold foil mesh and our exclusive laser-cut leather patterns that incorporate LED lighting, laminated within the glass units for that visually superior statement.

Our bespoke frameless glass balustrade systems are a popular architectural glazing design feature on many of our projects. They create a crystal clear, yet formidable safety barrier and are designed to improve the interior and exterior aesthetics of your home which are not only visually stunning, yet maximise the light penetration to the area where it is installed.
One of the fundamental reasons that our frameless glass systems are so popular in home design is that they help to create the illusion of more space in your property – this is increasingly true if the balustrade is manufactured using our extra-extra clear glazing.

Structural glazing is the designation used to describe glass that is fundamental to the design of a building that incorporates large glass panels which bear weight as part of the overall structure enabling us to produce large glass installations with minimal obstruction.
At Glass Design & Build London we implement the use of our bespoke structural glass within our systems to transform the look of your property which enhances your home, both internally and externally and comes in a variety of configurations such as beams, flooring, roof-lights, staircases, balustrades, windows and doors.
Our bespoke structural glazing is designed, engineered and manufactured using a process that increases the strength up to 7 times and can is strong enough to be used for walk-on flooring and staircases.
For our large frameless structural glass installations, this can sometimes require the use of a crane to lift the glass units into position before being structurally fixed using industrial strength silicone bonding agents and which may require the need for hidden mechanical fixings dependent upon the design. Bespoke multiple height structures can also be achieved with the use of our structural glazing to spectacular effect.
Our knowledge of architectural 4 sided structural glazing along with our expertise in incorporating the latest innovative glass technologies allows us to devise and engineer solutions that culminate in spectacular creativeness and inspiration.
As a part of our professional design consultation and survey service, we will assess your property and the general site for access of any machinery that may be required in the construction of your project such as spider cranes, excavators for example.
There is no typical style to our designs and with the freedom that structural glass allows our designers, almost anything is possible. As a specialist construction company and what sets us aside from other structural glazing companies is that Glass Design and Build London deliver the knowledge along with many years of expertise that we have gained working on numerous architectural projects which include listed properties and luxury residential properties.
