Skylight above the main stairs of a manor house near La Garriga

The sequence of photographs speaks of the initial study and the project, followed by the construction of the metal structure that comprises the skylight (sizes: 4.5m/4.1m).

In the workshop we see the making of one of the 68 panels of stained glass and some panels already finished.

We can also see the tables full of panels with protective glass sealed with silicone.

We finish the work with the placement of the panels to the structure and the view of the finished set.
