A gabled opening that references the forms of traditional hutong houses marks the entrance to this hotel in Beijing by architecture studio Penda.
Whether people want to fence in the pool or the balcony, a glass balustrade will be a great and beautiful option to do so. This decorative structure is basically a surrounding barrier that is made entirely out of glass or a glass in a frame made of some other material. Using this kind of balustrade can be a very attractive way to decorate any home or vacation house. These things can give any house the feeling of an upscale, elegant, and beautiful resort. It exudes an aura of luxury. However, this type of balustrade is not for all people.
It is very important for people to consider their lifestyle to determine if this kind of balustrade is perfect for them. If proper consideration is not done, a wrong choice might be made and construction investments that cost a lot would be wasted. Depending on the area that the glass balustrade covers, anybody could potentially end up spending huge amounts of money. Although very attractive, these glass constructs have their own negative points too and prospective buyers should be aware of them.
Because of the material, these things can be very hard to clean. If time does not permit the owner to clean a lot of glass, then he or she might reconsider buying them. There would be better choices out there. Maintenance would be very difficult after all. For one thing, dirt on glass is easily spotted. The material can also get chipped or damaged when they are not cared for properly.
