Refurbishment of the historic Turner glass house. Each panel of glass had four specially extruded PVC spacers fitted to prevent its edges from touching the frame.

A modern, paintable, polyurethane based sealant was then used in lieu of putty and was used to structurally glaze the curved glass panels adding stiffness to the overall structure.
