Award Winning Contemporary Glass Extension
The main purpose of installing a glass extension onto the No. 10 house was to create a new kitchen and dining room that would face the garden to allow the homeowners to enjoy their views with an ideal indoor-outdoor living experience throughout the year.
The new extension included a set of biparting minimal windows® sliding glass doors to help create a large opening into the extension. Installing these slim framed sliding glass doors has helped the homeowners achieve the indoor-outdoor living experience they wanted by merging the new dining and kitchen area with their garden.
These floor-to-ceiling glass façades maximise the natural light intake into the new extension. Having a slim sightline of only 21mm provides the best views of the garden area with very little obstruction.
The aluminium framing used is thermally broken, providing impressive amounts of thermal insulation into the home. The use of high specification glazing combined with the impressive engineering of these sliding glass doors prevents any draughts from passing through. This then creates a warmer home in the winter.
The No.10 project won the Regional award for the ‘Best Extension Project’ at the Building Excellence Awards 2016. This project won the award as the sliding glass doors installed merged the garden and new living area together as well as increased the natural light intake into the new dining and kitchen space.
Incredible Thermal Performance:
The aluminium framing used on minimal windows sliding glass doors are all thermally broken, providing a great amount of thermal insulation into a home. The thermal break technology helps create a warmer home, especially in the colder months as drafts do not pass through into the home.
