DLA Piper Law Firm
20 different kinds of glass
This was a nine-floor interior build-out with 20 different types of glass.
That would include doors and partition walls, bullet resistant glazing, oversized glass projection screens, back-painted glass wall cladding and specialty custom-laminated colored glass. This place is practically a Glass Palace.
The doors alone were a challenge. We’re talking doors with embedded bands of color and doors that swing both ways – which might be easy for wooden doors in an old-West saloon, but not so easy in a modern law firm office with glass doors.
Sometimes, it’s like the architects are just testing us to see just how far we can go. Pretty far, it turns out.
