Interior Residential Design with the Sustainable Benefits of Glass Block

Glass block’s  dynamic relationship with light provides the opportunity to create both aesthetically pleasing and energy-efficient residential interior designs.

 

As a natural material, glass block can add beauty and inspiration while playing a significant role in sustainable design. Made largely from sand and limestone, glass block is 100 percent recyclable, inert, low maintenance, and highly durable.

The U.S. EPA estimates that the average American spends over 80 percent of his/her time indoors. It is important for our own wellbeing to create indoor spaces that are healthy and comfortable.
