dc.descriptionFrontal view of the glass blocks only, living room façade, looking up; Chareau joined efforts with licensed architect Bernard Bijvoet and master craftsman Louis Dalbet. Maison de Verre was a private residence and doctor's office for Dr and Mme Jean Dalsace. The house embodied the principles of modern building methods. It was constructed with a metal framework that was left exposed on the exterior and interior and infilled with curtain walls of glass brick. The interior, bathed in daylight gently diffused by the glass walls, was open-plan but could be divided by curtains or sliding partitions of perforated metal or glass.
