Award Winning Architecture

GLASS ARCHITECTS believes that good design begins with the client, the end users and the programmatic requirements of the project. We believe that the best designs are a direct result of solving the client’s needs and that the best architectural projects are necessarily a collaborative process. No set style drives our design approach; we allow the design to follow a logical and independent course. Our building designs are a natural outgrowth of the project’s programmatic requirements, the site’s specific terrain and the character and nature of the surroundings. This approach results in unique and sensitive building designs that are responsive to their natural and man made environments. The overarching vision is to create humane, engaging and invigorating built environments for living, working and recreation.

The following is a list of awards Glass Architects has received over the years.
