Are you thinking… a “glass house”… in the desert? Wouldn’t it be much too hot or too cold? Seems like it would be impossible.

But watch this video about a house built in Spain in the Gorafe desert.  Though set amid spectacular views of mountains and desert landscape, a building in this remote and inhospitable location would have been unthinkable without specialized glass.

 

 

Architect Spela Videcnik of OFIA Architecture says: “The goal of this project was to show that with the right glass, great indoor spaces can be created anywhere”. “Designed with the help of experts in glazing technology, this project in the Spanish desert was planned so that the house would not need any heating or air conditioning. Just open the windows!”

Technical Manager, Guardian Glass, Tamas Kovacs says, “just imagine being out here and spending a night under the starry sky. Basically being in a glass house is not much different from sleeping right under the stars”.
