Keeling House is a grade II listed building in London that was recently converted from a redundant water tank into a maisonette. IQ Glass provided and installed the glass sliding doors used in this project. As part of the planning requirements for this sensitive build, these sliding doors have been sandblasted, providing the required privacy for the homeowners and neighbours.
Vertical sandblasted louvres have also been integrated into the glass installation in front of the sliding door opening to enhance the privacy of the owners and surrounding residences when the central sliding glass door is open. These louvres also provide a unique, contemporary aesthetic to the maisonette as they are not a common design in glazing design. By having these louvres incorporated into the sliding glass doors, maximum amounts of natural light can be passed through into the home as well as a good amount of ventilation without allowing vision into the home from the neighbouring apartments when the sliding door is open
A glass balustrade has been installed within the glass sliding door opening to provide safety for when the glass sliding doors are open. Using a frameless glass balustrade allows all natural light to pass through into the home as well as preventing any obstruction to views that could have occurred with a frame.
