Oxfordshire glass extension

IQ Glass was the chosen subcontractor to design and install a glass extension to an old Oxfordshire home. MarbleAir Architects lead the project design with the main contractor, Dawes Development to deliver on a new light filled space offering seamless transitions to the patio with structural glazing elements to the cantilevered flat roof 5 x 4m glazed extension.

Three glass walls immerse the new space into its patio surroundings with slim sliding glass doors in a bi parting configuration up allowing seamless transitions to the garden. 

The new open plan kitchens and snug benefits from a frameless fixed Invisio thermally broken rooflight aligning with the rectangular shaped extension.  

The flat roof cantilevered addition has structural beams to the corners of the front elevation. The slim profile framing of the structural glass and sliding glass doors are in global alignment with the structural posts preventing the garden views from being obscured.

The oversized frameless glass on three elevations, plus the large fixed rooflight mitigates solar gain, thanks to the solar control coatings applied to each elevation. 

The 20 sqm metre Oxford glass extension feels so much larger inside because of the expansive panes. 

The result is a stunning glass extension and remodelling of a once dated Oxfordshire home. 

 Project architect, Anna shares "What I like about this design is the effect the alterations (a proverbial 4x5m single storey rear extension) made to the flow of the house and its connection with the outside.

"Whenever I am there I just want to sit on the sofas with a cup of coffee and emerge into watching the world behind the glass!"
