PEOPLE IN GLASS HOUSES

Screen Shot 2020-02-01 at 11.08.15Possibly the only reason to travel through the Gorafe desert in Granada is to take a look at the Casa del Desierto. The bleak desert can be extremely hot and extremely cold although, of course, ambient temperatures inside the exposed 20m2 cube keep steady, winter and summer, thanks to the superior thermal isolation technology deployed in the revolutionary glass. The glass box was constructed in its challenging setting as a thorough product test and extremely good sales tool. It’s uncertain how many contracts Guardian Glass have chalked up for windows, but there is plenty of interest from people keen and willing to spend a night in this most exposed and unusual accommodation. An application has been made for a tourism licence; until granted, stays are by invitation only.
