Hilltop Renovations – Kenfield Residence

Giroux Glass is proud to have been part of this residential renovation project, which involved installing glass walls around the perimeter of an exterior concrete deck. The owners chose glass in order to appreciate the breathtaking views surrounding their Los Angeles hilltop home. Now almost complete, the project began in January as a conventional install, but due to the nature of the glazing needed, we provided design assistance as well. Bringing our expertise into the design phase not only ensures that the required glass will be manufactured correctly, but also that our installation will meet city codes.

How “MOSTe” Empowers Women to Succeed

I recently had the opportunity to represent Giroux Glass at a fundraiser in support of an incredible local organization. “Motivating our Students through Experience,“ known as “MOSTe,” is a mentoring program focused on empowering young women, and gives them the resources they need to thrive as proficient students and to become successful women. Matching young women with mentors they may not have had otherwise, the organization also believes that helping these girls reach their own full potential benefits our entire community. MOSTe has been in existence since 1986 and has been helping the Los Angeles community and young women in [...]
