Thanks to showing off what you can do with glass, Queenstown’s Lakeland Glass won ‘best showroom’ at the recent Window & Glass Association New Zealand Design Awards.

‘‘Glass curtain walls, glass canopies, glass sliding doors, glass partitions and frameless  glass balustrades — curved even — combine in this sharp and stylish building to create an
environment saturated with glass,’’ the judges’ citation reads.

Long-time owner Richard Campbell designed the showroom for his company’s new Glenda Drive premises that were completed just before the Covid lockdown.

‘‘It’s a bit of a shock I designed something that won something,’’ he says.

‘‘It was quite a nice feeling.’’
