From Wintry Glass Houses to Transparent Brick Homes

 - Apr 1, 2014
Transparent architecture is becoming increasingly popular, with many people wanting homes with plenty of natural light. While see-through homes may not be the best for privacy, they certainly look good.

Certain designs work perfectly with their surroundings, allowing people the comforts of staying inside while still being able to take in the scenery. House at a Lake by BBSC Architects for example features a mostly glass facade, enabling individuals to look out at the water no matter what time of day it is. Glass is not as sustainable as a substance such as brick, but with the right upkeep and care these pieces of transparent architecture could still last a decent number of years for owners.
