The Architectural Glaziers of Elsworthy Road

IQ Glass is the top choice on prestigious Elsworthy Road for architectural glazing 


Elsworthy Road in the affluent and trendy area of Primrose Hill, located in the London Borough of Camden, is a highly desirable destination for residence within London, offering easy links to the financial city as well as the center for leisure and entertainment.  Properties on Elsworthy Road are of distinction with a square foot value of approximately £1,800, and thus some of them are undergoing extensive modernisation and renovation featuring innovative architectural glazing solutions, such as structural glazing, to connect the modern with the traditional.  

Basement conversions are a popular choice for extending living space and increasing the value of the property due to the stringent restrictions on developing multiple storeys of living space. When planning a basement conversion, architects must carefully design the space to include glazing solutions that create lightwells and make the room feel airy and spacious, often allowing views onto an adjacent patio or courtyard. One of the ways to achieve a light-filled basement space that is functional and stylish is to include glazed floors and/or rooflight systems. These glazing solutions allow natural light to flood the space, creating a sense of openness and brightness, and provide views of the exterior, helping to make the basement feel less like a basement and more like a part of the main living space.

Some of the Primrose Hill glazing projects feature rooflight systems in basements that extended beneath the garden.  Fully integrated into the home network and controlled centrally to allow for ventilative cooling with weather sensors to automatically close the rooflights when rain falls. The addition of these structural features enabled these light restricted spaces to become a key living area in which its occupants can enjoy.

Slim Bifold Doors for Elsworthy Road 

One Primrose Hill glazing project on Elsworthy Road that we've worked on exudes timeless elegance by inviting views of the extensive garden grounds with the use of oversized slim framed bifolding doors.  

This particular project had been featured heavily in the press at time of planning approval, thanks to the extensive building plans and ‘mega basement’. IQ provided the architectural glazing for Elsworthy Road with a large glass roof with minimally framed glass doors below. These doors provide a seamless connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces, allowing natural light to flood the interior and providing a beautiful view of the garden. The use of slim frames also adds a modern touch and enhances the overall aesthetic of the property.  

The projects on Elsworthy Road designed with IQ Glass included the use of architectural glazing solutions to enhance comfort and wellbeing.

Each of the Primrose Hill glazing projects IQ has worked on in Elsworthy Road were unique to the homeowners’ tastes and lifestyles, and since IQ Glass's manufactured systems are completely bespoke, we were able to satisfy the unique architectural styles to maintain the curb appeal on this highly prestigious tree-lined road. The use of bespoke architectural glazing solutions allowed for the properties to retain their original character while also incorporating modern elements, creating a perfect blend of traditional and modern architectural styles.
