Design Detail – Glass Enclosed Bedrooms And Bathrooms

When architect Manuel Ocaña was designing three apartments in the same building in Madrid, Spain, he decided to use glass walls as a way to separate the various spaces within the apartments.

By using framed glass walls, the light from the windows at one end of the apartment is able to travel throughout the space, creating a bright and welcoming space. However, the glass walls also separate the bedroom from the main living area, without making the apartment feel small.

Not only are the bedrooms partitioned off with glass walls, but the bathrooms are too. Curved glass doors, which are also used for the bedrooms, allow the doors to seamlessly fit in with the contemporary design.

To allow for more privacy, the glass walls used for the bathroom have been slightly frosted to still allow light to travel through, but at the same time blur the image of the person using the bathroom.’

Maybe you’ll want to incorporate this into your next dream home design.. cool stuff!
