My house, a typical Dutch suburb row house, was built in 1987 and the first owners immediately replaced the window above the door that separates the living from the stairs to the first floor, with wired glass. Fire proof, yes, but also a very disturbing look in a cosy living room.
So I thought: let’s replace it with a beautiful piece of glass and drew inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright’s ‘Clerestory Windows’ for Avery Coonley Playhouse in Riverside, Illinois. I simplified the design from 1912, replaced the colours with the ones I already have in my kitchen window and asked a professional to make it. Above you see the result and the original from FLW. Quite pleased with it.
