The unlimited variations and possibilities of glass are being explored by today’s artists and designers. Bold statements in glass can turn public spaces like lobbies, stairwells, and entrances into works of art. Spaces that can so easily be mundane, instead become vibrant focal points.
Kits Glass Ltd. has created such spaces throughout North America. Whatever the scale or challenge of the design, Kits Glass can execute any commercial glass project with the assurances that only an experienced and time tested company can provide.
Below are just a few examples of our Commercial Projects.

The original stained Glass Dome in the Palm Court of the Fairmont’s Empress Hotel in Victoria B.C was one of the hotel’s greatest treasures.

Kits Glass reconstructed this masterpiece from old photographs.
