Ultimate Guide to Glazing for Hotels and Hospitality Buildings
Hotel and hospitality projects have vast opportunities for large glazing applications based on the function of the space. Hotels and restaurants are typically places where people go to relax and unwind, a space which can be upgraded with slimline and sleep glazing solutions. There are various options for glazing for hotels and hospitality.
Glazed extensions can be bespoke engineered to create luxurious internal function spaces for clear surrounding views and large values of light infill into the space. Installing slim framed glass doors and structural glazing applications contribute to creating aesthetic environments as well as proving added benefits such as durability, natural light infill and high-performance solutions.
Glass box extensions are a trend in architecture that creates an internal space with clear and uninterrupted views of the outdoors and surrounding views. For hotel and hospitality projects in more picturesque locations using bespoke glazing solutions, such as glass box extensions or large structural glazing applications, creates the opportunities to make the most of the stunning surroundings.
In hotel and hospitality projects natural light is very important in promoting wellness which is commonly sought after in commercial hospitality spaces. The key to achieving this lies in the specification of high-performance, minimally framed glazing. High-end glass solutions maximise the amount of daylight entering each living space while ensuring no compromises are made on other aspects of the build.
Creating healthy spaces for people to work, live in and use has always been an essential part of architecture but has become even more prolific in recent years. With new building regulations coming into effect, it’s important that the glazing solutions lay in line with these regulations; IQ can assist you with glazing solutions which help with these building regulations.
