Mirrors don’t only have to reflect bright areas or windows, however – they can also be used to accentuate the architecture by reflecting interesting angles or spaces. This effect can be difficult to achieve, but when done well, can truly elevate a contemporary space to appear even more well thought out.
Mirrors are reflective surfaces that can be used in numerous ways beyond their usual placement on the walls of dressing areas or bathrooms. They can make interiors seem larger, alter boundaries and also render large buildings invisible at first glance. Reflective finishes can also be used at different scales or combined with other materials to dramatically transform spaces. Here are a few projects where mirrors have been used ingeniously inside and out, reflecting new takes on a longstanding architectural trend.
