Futureglass was involved in a large refurbishment of a restaurant and during this process an old well was uncovered in the floor. The owners liked this somewhat unusual architectural detail and so tasked us with the challenge of designing something that would make the well safe but without having to hide it. Luckily toughened glass is capable of holding immense amounts of weight whilst maintaining visibility.
We took the time and applied our expertise in order to design the ideal cover. We calculated the exact size and thickness of the glass required to be able to support a human with no risk of breakages and the end product looked fantastic.
Glass can be an innovative way of meeting the practical requirements of a room without sacrificing the inherent beauty of the architecture.
