Igloo’s glass part consists of 23…24 safety glass sections, depending on the lay-out solution. The structure and joints of the glass dome are designed, so that the view is practically unobstructed. The hemispherical glass dome is constructed of laminated safety glass sections, which guarantees the safety of the space in the event of external impacts.
Stylish base frame and interior
The most important drivers of the design have been spacious interior, structural transparency, round glass surface, light steel structure and massive logwood parts. The eye-catching base frame is finished with a unique interior that can be tuned up with color and furniture choices.
The glass igloo consists of two parts: an insulating glass part and a wooden part. Massive Finnish pine is used in the wooden frame. The dimensions of massive Pine Logs are 206×260 mm, and they are pre-dried and practically non-shrinking.
Glass igloos are energy efficient. The glass dome consists of insulated safety glass sections, ie. thermal glass, which reduces heat loss and thermal energy costs. Low emissivity glasses, that reduce solar thermal radiation, can also be selected as an option.
