New Ocean Version of the Santambrogiomilano Glass House
You probably saw this gorgeous glass house set in the snow last year.
Now Santambrogiomilano has assembled another one by the sea.
Their glass “summer house” is just as mysterious and as intriguing as their “winter house”.
But “Santambrogiomilano” is not an architecture firm. It is a joint project between the architect Carlo Santambrogio and designer Ennio Arosio and they have a new purpose.
In their new combined endeavour Santambrogio and Arosio are creating a line of glass interior items intended to appear to be suspended in midair.
Their ‘Simplicity’ range includes iconic glass used to make everything from staircases and bookcases to beds and kitchen interiors.
All of the glass they use is about 1 1/4″ thick, that sandwiches a layer of PVB between two sheets of 3/4″ glass and glues the edges in a technique patented by Carlo Santambrogio.
The glass pyramid of the Louvre Museum in Paris was built with this same super-clear glass.
I’d like to see them make their next glass house – in the desert!
