Glass Art in Architecture
Glass is part of contemporary architecture, which along functional use can appear as a decorative element. Architectural glass art works are unique surfaces that harmonizes with the style of its surroundings, directly tones the interior air and atmosphere of the building. The colour intensity of coloured glass windows, the glow of the light turned into colours is incomparably superior to any other coloured surface. It can be used richly, in a nuanced and creative way to influence the atmosphere of the given architectural space.
The Hefter Glass studio has been operating for more thane 40 years, specialised in design and construction of works of glass art related to architecture, decorating or dividing interiors and exteriors. Besides many glass windows, rows of glass windows, room-dividers, luminous bodies, glass sculptures and works of public places, a considerable number of stained glass restoration work are parts of our portfolio as well.
The reason that make stained glass surfaces different is the relation to room and lightning. Its subject is not randomly specified, it is formed to suit the very exact architectural surroundings. If being watched from inside when lighting shines through it, these connections should be clearly recognised.
