LABC Regional Awards 2018 – Finalist

Spectacular ground floor extension with an innovative projecting glass apex, offering panoramic views of the property’s stunning location.


The house has a wonderful mature location with protected trees. The low height of the top floor windows influenced the design of the glazed extension to ensure that no light was lost and the garden views took centre stage.  


The glazed extension offers wonderful, full-height views to the garden and is a modern and attractive space to fully enjoy. Turning this design into reality took innovative thinking and engineering expertise. Correctly setting the apex of the extension required engineering investigation and exact structural drawings to ensure a successful build.  

Due to the mature trees in the garden, everything brought on to site had to be hand lifted. This meant that all steel work had to be welded on site. Engineering, building and our architectural team worked collaboratively with the client to achieve their dream design.
