Ashley Road was featured in the March issue of Homebuilding and Renovating in the Portfolio section of the magazine, under the title ‘A House with a Heart’. The original annexes used to extend the Victorian house had been demolished and replaced with the contemporary extension, including slim framed sliding glass doors by IQ. This new L-shaped extension provided a family living room, dining space and play room. The clients required a new extension that would provide natural light into the rear of the home where it had lacked previously with the two annexes. The glazing used includes IQ’s minimal windows® system and fixed glazing panels, allowing the space to be opened out onto the garden.
John Dyer Grimes, Architect for Ashley Road, commented on the overall project: “This property was tired and needed revisiting. The owners took the opportunity to transform it into a light and spacious home, with a complete reorganisation of spaces and a contemporary extension…Large sliding aluminium-framed glazing allows the internal spaces to be opened to the garden, bringing with it the feeling of space and light.”
