This Grade II listed Oxfordshire countryside home combined the original yellow brick of the boundary wall with bespoke frameless structural glazing to create a modern, light-filled side extension. The new living space overlooks the gardens and has been designed to house an open plan dining area and comfortable seating space.
The detached house is listed and located within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural beauty (AONB). This means that the house falls under strict planning requirements that IQ and the architect had to work to achieve.
An impressive 52 metre squared of structural glazing was used to create the large frameless glass roof, made up of five 10m long panes joined together with slim black silicone joints and supported with frameless glass beams.
