SHORTLISTED FOR HOME EXTENSION OF THE YEAR
An IQ Glass project, Gauden Road, has been shortlisted for the Home Extension of the Year award in The Sunday Times 'British Homes Awards' 2019. This contemporary residential extension designed by Kaap Studio Architects featured a full glazing package from IQ® which included minimal windows® sliding doors, an aluminium casement door, structural roof glazing and frameless glass balustrades.
This extension was installed to the ground floor of a mid-terrace London home. The extension was designed to also extend the basement living spaces which sat below this highly glazed extension. The slim framed sliding doors installed to this extension create a beautiful indoor-outdoor living environment. The glazing not only creates a beautiful light and airy living space within the extension, but it also floods the existing ground floor rooms with natural daylight.
The winner of the Home Extension of the Year award will be announced in September 2019.
BUILD ARCHITECTURE AWARDS 2019
IQ Glass has been awarded the prestigious title of "Best Architectural Glazing Specialists" in the UK in the Build Architecture Awards 2019. The project Camlet Way (Phase 2) was the project that IQ won this award for as the glazing system installed to this property was a super contemporary and unique system. The minimal windows guillotine window systems are a minimally framed vertical sliding sash window that enables exceptionally tall sliding windows that can cover multiple stories.
The vertically sliding sash windows that were installed to this property covered a two-storey height to allow an abundance of light into the property and create a real wow factor to the architectural design. These sash windows also provide a frameless access between the indoor and outdoor living spaces.
SMALL HOUSE OF THE YEAR - THE SUNDAY TIMES 'BRITISH HOMES AWARDS'
Aluminium sliding doors were a key feature within this contemporary new build design, to create a strong connection between the indoor and outdoor living spaces. The minimal windows® aluminium sliding door was installed in a corner opening configuration with a flush threshold base to provide a seamless transition between these spaces.
Water Meadow has been shortlisted in the Small House of the Year category of The Sunday Times 'British Homes Awards'. The project was a new build project that saw the construction of a new family home set within the flood plains of a river. This flood risk meant that the home had to be raised slightly to keep the property at a good height above the floor risk water level. This raised design also provides the homeowners with impressive views of the surrounding landscape.
The award winner will be announced in September 2019.
BEST NEW BUILD WINDOW INSTALLATION
IQ Glass has been awarded the Best New Build Window Installation (England) Camlet Way (Phase 2) for the minimal windows Guillotine Window installation on Camlet Way.
This project saw three double-height window installations to the rear of the property that offered impressive views of the homeowners beautifully landscaped garden. This stunning window arrangement featured three vertically sliding windows that are fully automated.
Although these window systems are technically 'windows' they can be used to access the outdoor living spaces. The guillotine windows offer the same flush threshold as the standard minimal windows® sliding doors alongside the exceptionally slim sightlines.
