Frameless structural glazing is a popular choice for these types of projects as the minimal design does not detract from the existing architecture. This is why a structural glass roof was specified for the side infill extension, supported with a slim steel T section, to seamlessly connect the old traditional building with the new contemporary extension.
The minimally framed sliding glass doors create an idyllic connection with the garden whilst providing primary access. The slim 21mm sightlines maximise views and natural light into the modern extension.
A great design feature for this renovation project was the oriel window seat in the kitchen. The design of the boxed window seat is frameless and minimal, providing an additional area for an influx of daylight into the kitchen area.
Internally, brick walls were left exposed to give the new living area some character as well as providing the space with a strong connection to the outdoors. As the garden floor and building exterior use the same toned brick this new living space bridges the gap between indoors and out.
The minimal design aesthetics of the renovation project provides bright light-filled open-plan living spaces, as well as carefully preserving the traditional features of the grade II listed property.
