IQ Glass are the UK's leaders in architectural glazing and as such work with some of the UK's most exciting and talented architects and designers. Both IQ as a company and our contemporary projects are nominated, shortlisted and winners of numerous awards both in the UK and abroad.
RIBA SOUTH EAST AWARDS 2019
Fir Tree House has been shortlisted in the RIBA South East Awards 2019. IQ Glass installed minimal windows sliding doors to this extension project in Sevenoaks which was designed by Crew Architects.
This Grade II listed building was transformed with a new extension which helped to better connect the homeowners with their expansive garden. The next extension included a cantilevered roof where the minimal windows sliding doors met a corner connection. Including a cantilevered roof meant that the homeowners could benefit from a beautifully seamless transition between the home and garden without any interruption from supporting beams.
The winner of the RIBA South East Award will be revealed later on in the year.
DESIGN ET AL AWARDS - REGENERATION/RESTORATION CATEGORY
Ashridge has been shortlisted in the Design Et Al Awards in the Regeneration/Restoration category. This project saw the transformation of a 1980's home into a large, light-filled, spacious home that melts into the surrounding landscape.
The homeowners specified large elements of glazing on their project to break the divide between the home and outstanding Buckinghamshire landscape. The large glazing systems capitalised on these incredible views and the slim frames created uninterrupted views.
These awards showcase the best in all renovation projects across the UK, the winner of this award category will be announced at the end of Summer 2019.
RESIDENTIAL £1-2.5 MILLION (PROJECT BY VALUE) IN THE INTERNATIONAL DESIGN & ARCHITECTURE AWARDS 2019
Old Quay has been shortlisted in the Design Et Al awards in the Residential £1-2.5 million project worth category. Old Quay is a new build project located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Initially, this project sought to revamp an existing building into a more contemporary family home, however, due to the flood risk that the property possessed they were unable to fulfil this desire. Therefore, the homeowners (working with Gillespie Yunnie Architects) took on a whole new task of designing a brand-new home that overcame the risk of flooding.
Even though the location threw many obstacles at the homeowners, they still wanted to make the most of the incredible scenery and views of the River Yealm that they originally fell in love with. The architects ensured that large expanses of glazing were utilised within the design of the property, including fixed structural glazing and large format sliding doors.
The winner of the award category will be announced later on in the year.
