Aside from maximising light, the key brief was to provide seamless connections to the mature rear garden for a dog loving family. Large sliding glass doors to the rear elevation opens the entire kitchen living space blurring the boundaries between the inside and the outside.

The large sliding door panels each span 2.7m wide. One fixed panel with a three sliding glass door configuration practically creating an entire glass façade.  

The gable end windows to the rear elevation are slightly larger than the front of the building maximising the views and natural light. 

The oversized windows, large sliding glass doors and gable end windows to this modern house in Cambridgeshire has solar control glass.  Despite this, for added comfort, two retractable awnings were installed to the rear elevation providing additional shade and protection for this dog loving family.
