Schwartz and Architecture

The inspiration for the remodel of this San Francisco Victorian came from an unlikely source – the owner’s modern-day cabinet of curiosities, brimming with jars filled with preserved aquatic body parts and specimens. This room now becomes the heart of the home, with glimpses into the collection a constant presence from every space. A partially translucent glass wall (derived from the genetic code of a Harbor Seal) and shelving system protects the collection and divides the owner’s study from the adjacent family room.

It is regular tempered glass panels, which are likely less expensive than a manufactured product.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This interior wall, which acts as a guardrail for a stair, illustrates how clarity recedes the farther something is from the surface. The zigzag of the stair treads and risers is quite clear; the handrail less so; the person less distinct. What lies beyond is indistinguishable — just a haze of diagonal movement.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The Many Highlights of Translucency
Translucency Plus ColorThe primary component of glass is silica. Silica often contains iron oxides, and the color of glass is affected by the amount of iron in the silica. Low-iron glass, such as this, is white in color as compared to the greenish tint of standard glass. Low-iron glass, however, is more expensive, because the silica is of higher quality. Here it blends with the white in the overall composition, allowing the wood to become the primary contrasting element in the composition.
