In­side out

Living Etc - - DESIGN/PROJECT -

If gain­ing ex­tra light and link­ing your home to the gar­den is a pri­or­ity, then frame­less glaz­ing and slid­ing pocket doors are your friends. cre­at­ing a seam­less look, they’ll min­imise bar­ri­ers to light en­ter­ing the house and of­fer un­in­ter­rupted views of the out­doors. they can also re­duce the vis­ual im­pact of your ex­ten­sion, both on your own prop­erty and your neigh­bour’s home.

Project de­tails

this ter­raced house in north Lon­don was en­closed and dark be­fore cof­fey ar­chi­tects re­worked the rear and side re­turns, link­ing them to the gar­den. the low-im­pact de­sign is a sub­tle in­ter­play of solids and voids, with the ex­ist­ing brick walls ex­tended along the lines of the party wall, an al­most in­vis­i­ble roof win­dow that opens up the ex­ten­sion to the sky, and frame­less slid­ing glass pocket doors that bring the out­side in. min­i­mal Win­dows sells doors like these, from around £1,200sq m.
