This architecturally designed house in Hertfordshire is a great example of how IQ can help bring an architectural design to life.
The architects (ATELIER ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN) designed this contemporary house around a central entrance courtyard. The rear of the property overlooked magnificent unspoilt countryside views, which they wanted to make the most of with as much glazing as possible.
Some of the most impressive elements of glazing on this project were the shaped double height elevations of glass. At the base, we used our exclusive minimal windows® sliding doors which offered the slimmest sightlines (21mm of aluminium). The threshold of these slim sliding doors is completely flush with drainage built in, so the architects could maintain their vision to have a seamless internal to external transition.
Shaped fixed glazing was installed above the sliding door to create an impressive double height glass facade for the master bedroom. The shaped gable end window design was created using a slim Sieger aluminium frame, powder coated to the same finish as the sliding doors below and the supporting steel.
To complete the architectural glazing package, we created a series of bespoke aluminium window installations. These modern window openings were created using our exclusive Sieger® aluminium window system. The thermally broken aluminium profiles are very slim and in keeping with the design of the rest of the glazing on the project.
The resulting project has an extremely contemporary design, using a mixture of timber cladding and aluminium framed glazing to create an architectural design.
