Summit Glazing had reached a significant milestone in its growth when we were approached by the visionary architect Peter Cardew to take on a unique and challenging project. The project was a testament to Peter’s bold and innovative approach to architecture.

Peter Cardew had presented us with several challenging opportunities, including the installation of a Profilit glass wall, multiple double mitre curtainwall openings, and intricate skylight systems.

This open-concept design cleverly utilizes floor-to-ceiling mitre windows, offering a clear, uninterrupted view of the backyard and creating a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. A significant feature is the inclusion of a Profilit floor-to-ceiling system, known for its high thermal performance and light-diffusing properties, enhancing the overall ambiance of the interior. The fusion of these glazing techniques underscores the transformative potential of glass in modern architecture, providing an exquisite balance of aesthetic appeal, functionality, and energy efficiency.

Summit Glazing was up to the challenge and rose to the occasion, providing a professional and detailed approach to the installation of these complex systems. The company’s skilled glaziers worked diligently to successfully implement Peter’s designs, bringing his vision to life.

The design inspired us to push the boundaries of what was possible in our field. The project was proof of the company’s commitment to excellence and passion for innovation in professional glazing, paving the way for who we are today.

With over two decades of experience and a long history of successful projects in Vancouver and the surrounding areas, we have the expertise and knowledge to execute glazing tasks of any difficulty.
