Structural glazing was used to link the new extension with the existing basement space below. Internally, a fire-rated glass partition lines the entrance to the basement, the frameless design in keeping with the rest of the minimally designed glazing, while meeting essential fire safety requirements for the new space.
Integrated into the floor beside the stairs and along the external patio space, walk-on structural glass floorlights allow natural light into the basement area. The floorlights were created using IQ’s thermally broken Invisio structural glazing system to produce frameless effect glazed units, maximising the light reaching the living spaces below.
The finishing touch to the bespoke extension project took the form of a structural glass BBQ installed in the sunken patio area. Frameless low iron glass was used to create this unique design, minimising the green tint that becomes exaggerated by exposed glass edges. With easy access to the home and the ground-level garden atop the adjacent steps, the barbeque provides the perfect indoor-outdoor living experience.
