Architect Carlo Santambrogio has designed Santambrogiomilano, a project in glass with an exlusive character that allows unique pieces to integrate with all environments of daily life. To showcase his glass furnishings collection, which he has named Simplicity, he has designed two transparent glass concept homes.

The aim of the project was to give ‘transparent’ shape to a precise and essential way of conceiving and living the spaces. The use of glass sheets in a structural way excludes the need of profiles or other supporting elements. It also eliminates any distractions from the pure shapes and extreme elegance. The transparency and lightness of the glass aids the spectacular nature of the house. The house is made out of extra clear glass by Saint Gobain, tempered and stratifie, aptly named Diamant for its characteristics of purity and brilliance.
