Façade Solutions Designed and
Engineered by Stella

Choose from a spectrum of transparency for your façade.
From Invisible to Minimalist to Bold.
From Concept to Creation.

Invisible Solutions

Refined support systems for monumental designs. Soaring glass expanses with nary a support in sight and completely clear sight lines. These structural solutions are made for your unique vision while meeting thermal performance requirements. Reliance on glass as the structural element with support discretely hidden away.

Envision a glass cube with no visible hardware.

All Glass

Perfect for projects where you are looking to maximize the light without any visible support disrupting the sight lines.

Let the glass do the heavy lifting to create an “all glass” look.

Minimalist Solutions

Simple support that blends into the background, working in tandem with the glass. These sleek edge-supported solutions create structural strength, reducing glass thicknesses for more cost effective solutions.  


Concealed within vertical glass panel joints, “toggles” use mechanical fasteners that maximize glass panel sizes while minimizing their visual appearance.

On its own, the system requires deadloaded face glass.

Ledge Support

Ledge supports carry the dead load of the glass. Aligned with horizontal glass panel joints and partially concealed, this is offers a discrete but affordable option for structural façades.

Fin with Point-support

Whether the fin is cantilever or full-height, it can be supported by a multiple array of hardware such as spiders or doc-&-pins, tying the fin and face elements together.

Steel with Point-support

Combining the steel support with the glass structure means less visual obstruction. The high strength of the steel allows for slender profiles over long lengths, placing it in the middle between a glass fin structure and a mullion structure.

Bold Solutions

Industrial support systems where focus switches from clean and clear to bold and memorable. It highlights the ingenuity of a complex system with a visible expression of engineering.

Cable Net

Cables span the opening, either vertically, horizontally, or both.

Clips attached to the intersections of the cables support the glass at the corners. This system act like a tennis racket in that there is a lot of in/out movement when exposed to wind loads.

The surrounding structure needs to be capable of resisting very high tensile loads from the cables.

Cable – Bow Truss

This system relies on tensile forces being transferred from the stainless steel cables to the structure above and below.

Two cables follow a parabolic shape to resist wind loads. A discrete cable extends down, just inside the face of the glass to carry the dead load of the glass.

Cable – Compress Truss

Comprised of a vertical steel column, horizontal spars, and tension cables. Vertical compression truss systems don’t necessarily impose dead loads onto the structure above (all loads can be carried by the structure below).

Tension cables are fixed to the spars in opposing parabolic curves. A dead load cable often extends down the inside face of the glass if the loads can be carried by the structure above.
