Project Overview

Category: Religious
Location: Richardson, TX
General Contractor: Southern Glass & Mirror
Architect: HH Architects


Our SHOE™ Structural Glass Railing System is an aluminum glass railing system with a patented compression set aluminum base shoe system. SHOE™ Glass Railing is perfect for commercial interior or exterior, balcony railing or stair railing applications. In addition, this architectural railing solution provides a fall protection system without the use of an unsightly barrier. SHOE™ Aluminum Glass Railing can be either top or fascia mounted. It is available with a glass bracket mounted handrail, round top cap or a U-channel top cap. Base shoe is available in stainless steel or an anodized aluminum cladding.

VIVA’s tempered glass infills provide optimal line of sight as well as an understated elegance. Our glass infills range from a minimum of 3/8″ PVB or SGP laminated glass. Colored, patterned and frosted glass are additional options based on design intent and need.


First Baptist Church Richardson welcomes you with warm open arms and features life-changing, mission-minded values through worship and Sunday services. The newly renovated atrium features ceiling to floor glass all along the entirety of the worship center, cafe, and large entryway. Being able to take in the full view from the second floor was very important and our all glass, fascia mount system is the perfect choice for First Baptist.
