Art of Glass
You know what they say about glass houses? Don’t throw stones at them. You know what they should say about glass houses? That they are a great place for your next event or production. Glass houses are unique in the fact that they really bring a sense of transparency to an event or production. However, it goes even beyond that in the fact that it is a really unique place to host an event. If you think about how many events you have been to in your life that took place in a glass house, as long as you are like the average person, it it probably 0. If you are lucky, you may have been to one event in a glass house. Because of this reality, it is actually a pretty rare event for something to be held in a glass house and it is likely not something that you have even considered as a place to host your event.
The Basic Idea that Makes Glass Houses the Perfect Event Spaces
Not all types of events should be held in these spaces but there are some that are actually perfect and should be considered. Glass houses, for events, can really bring another element to the event. For example, it could be a fantastic idea for fall or Winter events because while you are protected inside from the outdoor weather, you can still experience all of it. In the fall you can enjoy the leaves falling all around and allow the event to go into the night when temperatures drop instead of cutting it off before that time. In the winter, you can host an event with the snow falling all around so you can enjoy the beauty of it while staying completely warm inside the home. Not only is it something that can be enjoyed but it is also a way to add another decoration element. You can save money on the decor by simply planning it at the right time for your guests and allowing the external features to become some key elements of the party.
Using Glass Houses for Productions and Photoshoots
Just like these houses create ideal conditions for specific types of events, they can also be great for productions and photoshoots. With the right conditions happening outside of the home, you can add a lot of drama, flare, and feel to these things and make sure that they are shown in the picture, all while staying warm and safe inside. With the added scenery available outside, it would provide a realistic backdrop that you can use while also eliminating some of the cost associated with otherwise having to create the backdrop. Not only that, but you will have the ability to go outside and use the scenery as well as stay inside to use it. With a glass house, there are a lot of different options that you can use to really create the idea and storyboard that you have decided on.
