Haarlem, a contemporary rear extension, was featured in Real Homes ‘how much does a glass extension cost?’ guide. Our Yew Tree house project was also featured, illustrating a large minimal glass box extension. The article explores the cost of various elements, such as slim framed glazing systems, structural glass structures and door systems.
The steel framed extension, Haarlem, creates a contemporary rear façade, providing direct garden access and allowing an abundance of natural light to flow into the home thanks to the slim steel profiles. An eclectic mix of fixed and opening elements are used to achieve a symmetrical design.
One advantage of specifying MHB steel systems for an extension is the flush threshold base detail, allowing step free travel between indoor and outdoor environments for an indoor-outdoor style of living. Steel glazing systems are some of the highest quality materials on the market, with MHB being a long wearing, durable system in any climate.
When designing a glass extension, no matter what the budget is, it is important to make sure the systems are fully thermally broken to achieve modern performance values and a comfortable living temperature all year round. MHB steel is the slimmest thermally broken system available on the market, with sightlines as slim as 30mm.
The article also features expert advice from Shannon Normoyle at IQ Glass, detailing which elements factor into the cost of a contemporary extension as well as offering some factors to consider.
