Viridian Glass on The Block 2019

Another season of a blockbuster series of The Block has now come to an end! We were honored to be approached to provide glass and glazing to the contestants this year!

The Blockheads designed their homes to ensure natural light was able to be accessed by their spaces as much as possible. They successfully ensured glazing was installed into the nooks and crannies of these historical terrace homes to bring fresh light and inviting spaces to these beautiful buildings.

We have been a regular supporter of The Block, and we are always excited to see how the contestants make use of glazing and windows around their home to maximise the aesthetic, comfort and natural light. This year, the biggest Block ever, was no exception!

Congratulations to all this year’s contestants! In particularly to House 2 winners Tess and Luke!

This year, the teams used LightBridge double glazing throughout the home. Not only allowing for bigger windows, but also allowing for comfort and sustainability for many years to come.

The windows weren’t the only place glass was used!

Tess and Luke in House 2 used DecorFloor to access more light from the overhead skylights into the bottom level of the house.

The teams also made use of VTough glass balustrading for their stairwells. We particularly love the way Jesse and Mel designed their amazing glass panelling around their stairs.
Such beautiful homes – we are so proud of the way Viridian Glass was used by all the contestants.

Don’t forget – when choosing your windows and doors ask your builder or window fabricator for Viridian Glass.
