This impressive beach front home exudes luxury in every detail, with extensive glazing work featured throughout, notably the glazed frameless spiral staircase with floor-to-ceiling bent glass windows, frame the feature staircase and allows light to fill the expansive entranceway to the home.


The building’s unique shape involved retaining a perfectly uniform radius all the way around its perimeter’. According to Corey Wilson, General Manager of Westec Doors and Windows, Consistently maintaining that level of precision was very involved work. All the curved glass for the task was specially ordered and shipped from Glasshape. Representatives from Glasshape worked with us to ensure a precise measure; the panels were then made and freighted to us for installation. While the result may look seamless, the design and construction process involved in such a significant project took approximately three years from start to finish,’ says Corey. ‘Yet it only takes one look at the luxurious result to appreciate the stunning results of that mammoth effort’.

Glasshape would like to congratulate Westec Doors and Windows on completing a significant, complex and highly recognized glazing project.
