Perham Farm

A large barn conversion in the South West

This large barn in Taunton has been converted into a spectacular interior space, with the introduction of large glass sliding doors. minimal windows® high performance sliding doors make a huge difference for the cold winter months as they are fully thermally broken to ensure they retain heat, keeping the barn nice and cosy.

The five-panel system spans over 10m in length and all five panes slide away into pockets on either side of the opening for a completely open aperture.

Traditional brown timber is used to form shutters, which slide across the front of the large glazed opening when the space is not in use, keeping the construction secure and private if required. The sliding glass doors with timber internal posts create a contrast, with the warm wood tones offsetting the aluminium profiles for a unique combination of materials and colours.




The client's request was to have easy access to their outdoor area and maximise space between external and internal environments. IQ Glass have exceeded this inclusive design, with the five panels sliding open to give an indoor-outdoor living experience.

Ultra slim sightline on the door maximises natural light coming through the large glass, brightening up the room instantly. The sliding glass doors with timber internal posts are aligned perfectly.

When designing the walls of moving glass it was imperative for the timber beams to be aligned with the interlocking sections and our team of designers focused on global alignment, showing immaculate attention to detail to ensure these separate parts of the build were aligned.


The minimal windows® slim framed sliding glass doors enable the room to be brightly lit throughout the day, with natural light passing through the glass allowing the light to bounce through the minimal interior design.

By combining the old barn with modern glazing, the entire space has been modernised and the sliding glass doors with timber internal posts have become a design feature.

The combination of the indoor barn and outdoor space is faultless, as this allows the visitors to enjoy the bigger space that has been created without compromising the original charm of the farmhouse building.
