Glass Townhouses are a pair of three-story townhouses, designed by Sander Architects in California, divided vertically with no common walls, that use many of the eco strategies and materials that have become Sander Architects signatures. The name is reinforced by the design – vertical glass planes slide past one another, past odd-shaped openings and create the skin of the building. To capture the famous Southern California light, the long side of the building is a double skin of translucent panels and glass. In the interior, this creates dramatic floor-to-ceiling translucent walls that allow diffused natural light to pour into the rooms.
The kitchen and bathrooms are finished with European cabinets by Scavolini, Viking appliances, Caesar Stone countertops and mosaic glass tile. The living area features high ceilings and bamboo floors. The building has three bedrooms, three and a half baths, open plan Living/Dining/Kitchen with fireplace, Laundry, decks, and HVAC.
