Glass blocks may be used as partitions in open plan designs. To screen a front door from living areas or to create a dining or study area, glass blocks retain spaciousness by allowing light to pass through whilst providing separate spaces.

As stepped or curved walls they can change the layout of a room, or increase space, allowing flexibility in design.

In offices they are ideal partitions between workstations, as a privacy screen for a lunchroom or as a feature wall in a reception area. They can be used to create offices very quickly and easily with minimal disruption and mess.
