History & Philosophy
Vitrocsa embraces a simple philosophy - less is more. Our aim is to provide less visible window track and frame to maximise the experience of any given space. This unique solution offers an opportunity for architects and designers to create expansive, uninterrupted views, maximising the connection between interior spaces and their surrounds.
The Vitrocsa system uses glazing as a structural element. All tracks and frames are hidden within the architecture, enabling the slimmest frames to support the largest panes of glass.
Developed in 1993 by Swiss engineers applying precise watch technology, every component, detail and junction is reduced to its bare essentials in a quest for simplicity. The best use of Vitrocsa Glazing Systems is for the largest of openings with a minimum number of large panels.
Their passion for the Californian architecture of the 40’s and contemporary architecture as a whole was the driving force for their invention. In fact it was California architect Pierre Koenig’s famous Case Study House # 22, also known as the Stahl House, that provided the initial inspiration to create the Vitrocsa Invisible Wall system. The goal was to produce a minimal system that would take into account modern energy requirements as well as the architectural trend to incorporate very large sliding units into buildings.
Extrusions and accessories are manufactured in Switzerland and manufactured on-site in Botany, along with locally sourced components. Close communication and a dedicated team ensures seamless production, transport and installation, while ongoing research, development and refinement of new and existing systems ensures Vitrocsa remains at the cutting edge of the market.
All over the world, from Australia to Switzerland, from the Caribbean to the United States and Canada, the Vitrocsa Invisible Wall System excites more and more visionary architects and discerning home owners with a passion for contemporary architecture and simplicity.
