Atrium Homes – Australia

Glass can be bent and manipulated to suit a variety of architectural situations – but just how tight a curve can go has often been a limiting factor. However, with the right manufacturer, the options are greater.

This bent glass staircase at the head office of leading Perth-based custom home builder Atrium Homes – is a good example of advanced glass manufacturing delivering a spectacular end result.

The internal panels are bent to a 700mm (27 1/2″) radius – which no other manufacturer could achieve on 12mm (1/2″) glass, creating a dramatic central axis for this showcase stairwell. Glasshapes TemperShield® toughened glass is perfect for exactly these sorts of projects.

Our depth of experience and manufacturing capabilities helped in other ways too: significant benefits were gained in economies of scale, by supplying 25 panels in just three different radii. This meant three set-up costs were spread across multiple panels, greatly reducing the cost per unit.
