Enclosing loft with glass windows?
 
How feasible is it to turn a loft into a sound proof room using large floor to ceiling windows similar to what you'd find in a contemporary office? Will the floor handle that kind of weight?

What is the size of the beam under the loft?
How large is the opening that the windows will be placed in?

weight
 
Glass is heavy - glass made with the idea of sound proofing is even heavier (much!). If the loft was not specifically designed to hold additional weight across the open area then I wouldn't even consider the possibility of adding a glass wall there without an engineering inpection and load determination first.
