In London IQ Glass designed and installed a small glass extension to a larger renovation project to a terrace family home. The extension was designed to fit along a long narrow plot in the garden, designed to ensure access to the lower ground floor wasn’t affected but creating more living space on the upper ground level.
The extension included high specification elements of structural glass supported with slim steel sections. Along the side, sliding minimal windows were used to allow access to the small garden area.
In small extensions the amount of glass to frame appearance is important. The slim 21mm wide framing of the sliding glass doors meant that the maximum amount of glass could be used along the relatively small elevation with little light or view interruption.
Surrounding the sliding glass doors was a slim steel supporting section which was externally clad with back painted glass for a smooth, sleek appearance. Internally, aluminium pressings powder coated to the same colour as the sliding door frame created a neat internal view.
The steel sections internally on the glass box extension support the structural glass roof with slim vertical steel supporting this roof structure.
Further back into the extension a fixed, frameless structural glass window allows light further into the long narrow space, the shape required to maintain access to the basement rooms. This large, floor to ceiling window provides side entering light into the extension and allows a view out onto a small seating area.
