Glass House by Santambrogiomilano
It is no secret that modern architecture’s experimentation can be intended as a provocation. Perhaps one of the things that Modernism promises is freedom from everything as a result of a spatial effect—a free-flowing open space.
Emphasizing a pared-down openness, connecting with nature and absolute transparency are the essentials for Milan-based architect Carlo Santambrogio and glass designer Ennio Arosio. The Glass House concept, by Santambrogiomilano features a collection named Simplicity. It consists of a line of furniture and architectural elements made of ‘extraclear’ blue glass structures composed of a mixture of joints and glass sheets. The glass panels of 30 mm thicknesses can turn matte for privacy.
Successfully uniting nature and space, the Glass House becomes an object of its surroundings, almost unnoticed. The boundaries between nature and space are nearly erased and the landscape is the ultimate subject. The Glass House is completely uncluttered and exposed: residents can see the outside and neighbors can see the inside.
One wonders if the effect of a radically bare, translucent structure is too much to bear. Nothing is hidden. How inspirational would it be to experiment with the conceptual and practical challenge of a glass house, the ‘un-private house’—exposing our precious little privacy without shame. There is something for everyone however unconventional it may be.

Santambrogiomilano dining table delivered by Abitalia
There are times when things are just right. When nothing more can be added or there’s a need to take something away. These moments happen in design when time, effort and energy have transformed a concept to reality.
This afternoon Abitalia delivered and assembled a 3 metre Santambrogiomilano dining table for our client in Cheltenham. The 3 x 1m glass dining table sits beautifully within in the space, creating a stunning series of reflections, whilst echoing the volume of the kitchen island. Allowing the uninterrupted flow of the 800 x 800 tiles creates a seamless elegance.
The project is approaching the final stages, with our attention turning to the interior spaces within this contemporary home. Abitalia have been an integral part to the design process, working alongside the client to create a home that has quality in design and execution. We look forward to the completed project and professional photographs to show this stunning home in it’s true glory.
Abitalia’s studio is based in Gloucestershire with clients throughout the country with Abitalia South Coast attending the needs of architects, developers and private clients along the coast.
