One of our projects - Keeling House - has been shortlisted for this years Don't Move, Improve! awards.

The renovation project took an old water tank at the top of a Grade II listed building and converted it into a two floor apartment. Our minimal windows sliding doors as well as bespoke structural glazing helped open up the water tank and bring in natural light.

Due to the planning restraints and privacy issues of such a high level and overlooked building we designed the glass walls with translucent glazing and a bespoke glass louvre system to the central opening pane. A frameless glass balustrade integrated with the sliding doors to allow the centre pane to open for ventilation.
