IQ Glass worked alongside Granit Architects to realise this residential refurbishment to a Mew House in Knightsbridge, London. The rooftop extension was designed to increase the amount of living space to this tall narrow property, while also improving the amount of light funnelled down into the property. The project had a keen focus on sustainability and the architects had to liaise with the Grosvenor Estate to ensure that the building works were okay to be carried out.
The objective of this project was to refurbish and remodel the large four-bedroom family home within a six month build period. This build had a very short timescale as the family moving into the property were emigrating from Brazil. The refurbishment included the strip out and extensive structural works to open up the internal living spaces to create a modern, open-plan interior design.
To create a sustainable element to the design, the multi-storey property benefitted from a whole-house ventilation system with a heat recovery feature for sustainable insulation and underfloor heating.
