Glass partitions: 10 examples of using

Glass partitions are a universal design element. They allow you to solve different problems and are suitable for interiors in any style. With ten examples, we show and tell you how they can be used.

1. Apartment in a new building with good view

The semicircular windows of this apartment overlook Serebryany Bor, and in the terms of reference, the customer Katya Ulanova noted that she would like to admire the landscape as often as possible, so the place for the bedroom was allocated right by the window. And so that the resulting wall did not become an obstacle to natural light, a frame of transparent glass was made at the top, the glazing of which repeats the shape of the window openings. A glass insert, even of this height, is enough to make it light in the adjacent living room during the day.

2. Apartment- 80 m²

Designer Andrey Levitsky was acquainted with the customer for a long time, and even before he saw the space with which he had to work, he imagined the interior in the spirit of Parisian apartments: with high ceilings, French windows, and parquet “Herringbone”. The windows here are panoramic. Among them, Andrew placed a dining area and an office, which was necessary for the hostess. He did not fence off the dining room, and for the office, he came up with a glass partition made of brass, so as not to deprive the living room of daylight. He further multiplied it with mirrors and reflective surfaces – so the space seems not only lighter, but also visually larger.

3. Apartment with rare materials on the project P+Z

In the project of Pavel Zheleznov and Ivan Pozdnyakov, the founders of the P+Z bureau, part of the apartment, which includes a bedroom, a bathroom, and a dressing room, is separated by a frosted glass partition. This technique allows you to maintain privacy without isolating the bedroom completely. To make the partition, designers used glass profiles, which are usually found in public interiors. Look at this interior as a whole – Pavel and Ivan used in it a lot of interesting and atypical private interior finishing materials.

4. Apartment in a former factory building, 150 m²

Tatiana Kuzmina’s clients live in Europe, and this explains the boldness of their views. They not only decided on an absolutely dark interior but also on transparent glass partitions that separate the living and dining area from the bathroom and bedroom. The designer, of course, provided an opportunity for privacy (everything is closed with thick curtains) and thought out different lighting scenarios, so the space, despite the general dark background, does not look gloomy.

5. Apartment – 46 m²

In the apartment, decorated by Elina Musakulova, curtains also allow you to “close” the bedroom, but they are also a decorative accent: the main coral color, given by the chandelier, supports the facades of kitchen cabinets and curtains. Soft draperies in combination with glass partitions add coziness to the space.

6. Apartment-transformer

Designer Olga Ugur and her husband have an unusual transformer apartment – the only way they were able to make 40 m2 as functional as possible. In this space, the spouses both live and work, therefore, for example, the partitions that close the kitchen are made of frosted glass, often associated with offices. The utilitarian part of the apartment can be hidden so that it does not distract from negotiations. In multitasking mode, furniture also travels around the apartment – for these purposes, it is light and modular.

7. Two-storey apartment, 145 m²

In the project of Maria Vatolina, sliding glass doors separate the office adjacent to the living room. When it is not occupied and the opening is open, a single space with the living room is formed. And if one of the family members wants to retire and work, he can always close the door. Please note that one part of the canvas is made of slats – they allow you not to be distracted by what is happening in the living room, but at the same time maintaining contact with the household.

8. Practical apartment, 70 m²

Designer Evgenia Nistratova designed her own apartment together with her husband, and the “glass” cube that we see in the photo is his office workshop. The owners sought to let natural light into all corners, so there was a “window” between the living room and the office, and instead of a wall separating the corridor – sliding doors. Due to this, the hallway turned out to be quite bright. And this technique allows you to make the space visually larger. However, transparent glass instead of walls requires the owner of the workshop to observe a permanent order.

9. Apartment in the center of Moscow, 150 m²

A grooved partition, which we see on the left, separates the hallway from the living room – thus the designer Olga Solnyshkova launched daylight into this part of the apartment. Also, to compensate for the lack of sunlight, the designer painted all the walls light. Separately, it is worth noting the choice of material: textured frosted glass looks decorative and is more suitable for the interior in the spirit of modern classics.

10. Family apartment, 150 m²

From the windows of the apartment, inherited by Vlade Peterson, there are good views. But the window openings are located so high that it was difficult to admire the panorama of the city. To fix this, the designer raised the floor on two of the three balconies. They are all insulated and are used as offices, so glass sliding partitions are rather a decorative solution – their rhythm of glassing echoes the panels and moldings that finish the walls.
