A curvaceous glass balustrade framed in wood by Glasshape creates a traditional-meets-contemporary feature in this house by Fowler Homes Manawatu.

Curvaceous glass balustrades create an attractive, practical architectural element without blocking natural light or views. Traditionally seen with metal and stainless fixings, now their flexibility goes further.

This sweeping staircase in a house by Fowler Homes Manawatu, New Zealand, is a case in point. Architectural glass experts Glasshape created the curved glass designed to fit the timber balustrade.

Glasshape's technical manager Ken Ware says the firm's close coordination with the glass manufacturer and Fowler Homes ensured the project went smoothly.

"The toughened glass was curved to fit into a very tight channel in the timber and the sizing had to be extremely accurate," says Ware. "People often associate curved glass with metal frames or fixings, but here traditional timber framing was more in keeping with the style of home while the curved glass adds a modern accent."

Glasshape's product and service has many advantages. The glass offers superior clarity, with no green hue, and can be shaped to a tight radius, increasing design options for both architects and specifiers.

All glass products from Glasshape are made to the highest safety standards.
