THE HISTORY OF VITROCSA
It was 1993 when Swiss inventors applied precision Swiss watch technology and a completely new engineering approach, to create this exciting and unique luxury product with only ¾" vertical sight lines.
Their passion for the Californian architecture of the 40’s and contemporary architecture as a whole was the driving force for their invention. In fact it was California architect Pierre Koenig’s famous Case Study House # 22, also known as the Stahl House, that provided the initial inspiration to create the Vitrocsa Invisible Wall system. The goal was to create a minimal system that would take into account modern energy requirements as well as the architectural trend to incorporate very large sliding units into buildings.
The passion of the early Vitrocsa engineers still drives our engineering team today, to constantly develop new solutions and conserves the pioneering spirit in our search for maximum reliability and simplicity.
The extreme precision relating to Vitrocsa and the passion that motivates us have allowed us to install more than 30,000 units or 1 million square feet of glazing in over 30 countries since 1993.
In 2009, VItrocsa USA became part of Goldbrecht-Systems, the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of the Vitrocsa system in North America. Over 70 engineers, manufacturing specialists and other experienced staff members located in Los Angeles, CA, support over 50 high-profile Vitrocsa projects every year, from the design stage to post completion.
