“You gain more when have less – more space, more time, more light.” Reasons to use interior glass walls.
For twelve years I lived in a one-bedroom, 20th floor apartment in New York City. The living room faced south, with a sliding door that opened onto a small terrace. Due to the arrangement of my bedroom door and the existence of the slider, when I lay in bed I had a view of the Empire State Building framed by the doorway. My kitchen and bedroom windows faced East, offering a spectacular view of the East River and Long Island. So if the glass wall that separates this bedroom [top] from the remainder of this 900 square foot apartment looks radical, trust me when I tell you that when you’re up high enough and the views are panoramic, you’d kill for interior glass walls like this one.
The New York designer Jennifer Post, who designed this apartment is well known for her minimalist white interiors similar to this one. “You gain more when have less – more space, more time, more light,” she commented to Architectural Digest about this apartment that serves as a pied à terre for an art-collecting couple. When privacy is needed a motorized shade, concealed near the ceiling but operated from the bed, descends to screen off the bedroom’s glass wall – a corner of the track can be seen, top right in the photo. Otherwise, glass partitions let the outside all the way in.
