An automated rooflight was integrated into the returning structural glass roof of the side return extension. This automated opening rooflight allows ventilation within the double height glass space and to the piano room which sits just off the interior terrace balcony.
To the ground floor, the living spaces were further enhanced with the installation of a slim bi-folding door set from IQ which allowed easy access to the small garden. The slim bifold doors sit beside the double height glass doors and act as the day-to-day patio doors for the modern dining area.
All architectural glazing – including the double height glass doors, the automated rooflight, the bespoke pressings and aluminium bifold doors – were all finished in the same RAL colour of 7021 (black grey). This dark framing finish contrasted well with the light pallet of the interior design including the bespoke timber internal ceiling with its grid pattern design.
The result is a bright and spacious living space to the rear of this tight London property.

At the head, the double height glass doors connect with a returning glass roof via a steel post. IQ designed and engineered all elements of this, including the steel beam connection and the subsequent steel beams of the structural glass roof.
By combining the design and installation of the double height glass, glass roof and steel beams into one design and install subcontract package, the architects are able to achieve a fully cohesive design. The steel connections are covered by PPC bespoke pressings, templated and measured on site to create a perfect fit. The resulting double height glass extension has a homogenous design full of light and connecting multiple areas of the house to the rear garden and sky above.
