I’m gonna toss a perspective in here that hasn’t been mentioned:
Glass walls can look amazing, though I hear from a lot of people that they hate feeling like they’re in a fishbowl. I personally think it’s a weird architectural hack for trying to bend office-demand into a misunderstood open aesthetic. But that’s a longer debate, and for another day.
The bigger issue is that glass walls turn small rooms into awful echo monsters. Yes, you can temper it with acoustic treatment, but that’s yet another expense on top of the glass. Especially when the goal is to create spaces for phone calls, I’d be doing everything imaginable to get rid of echo’y surfaces.
Fundamentally, floor to ceiling glass is one of those style trends that I see doing more damage than good. Maybe an unpopular opinion? I’m not sure. I know we ruled them out as a usability concern very early in our renovation.

Tempered glass gets very expensive, Ask for store-front type glass with aluminum frame around it, it would be a quarter of the tempered glass price.

I’m exploring the possibility of adding some glass-walled offices to our coworking space and curious how much these typically cost. I’m looking for enclosed (with door) floor-to-ceiling options since the purpose would be to create more privacy for phone calls. Seeking an option that could fit one desk and another that could fit a desk of four.
I’d welcome all suggestions and manufacturers!
