Glass Extension On Listed Building

Listed building glass extension with corner opening sliding glass doors

The beautiful house from 16th century needed a renovation to emphasize the historic background of the Grade II Listed manor building. The design by BLA Architects includes a contemporary rear extension. The façades of the new part feature our high end sliding glass door in the listed building glass extension.

The ultra-slim solution was installed with an open corner configuration. The corner opening sliding glass doors create a wider connection between the internal and external areas. All glass panels are able to move on the long elevation with bi-parting configuration allowing the occupants to transition from one are to another within this listed building glass extension.
