I am sure you will agree that this converted barn and limestone home is stunning. A large renovation by our customers has really brought out the best in the buildings and created a gorgeous family home. Room Outside was hired as frameless glass specialists to help install our contemporary frameless structural glass across the property to make the most of the full height barn doors and archways as well as to create a striking frameless glass box extension to give the owners a place to relax and entertain while taking in the full beauty of their home and landscaped courtyard and gardens.
Our customer really wanted to blend the traditional features of the older original barn building with the newer extension and the contemporary glass to create a modern aesthetic that is sympathetic to the building’s heritage and history. Frameless glass gives uninterrupted views out into the garden and allows for light to flood the property. The windows and doors installed really make a statement creating the wow factor that this magnificent and grand home deserves. Frameless glass was also used to create a full glass entrance hall, with a slanted lean-to style roof and then frameless frontage and frameless doors. This glass box really creates a welcoming and spectacular entrance for the family and guests arriving at their home. All the glass is specially engineered to help control the temperature in the home and glass extension, keeping the warmth in in winter and helping to keep the heat and light comfortable during the warmer spring and summer months.
Along with installing the frameless glass windows, doors, and glass entrance, we also designed and built a contemporary fully glass room to add a light-filled space that was open plan to the rest of the living space, allowing even more light into the room. The glass box is built from structural glass that allows for the strength and stability required to create a room without the traditional timber, aluminium, and uPVC frames you see in many orangery and conservatory extensions. Like the windows, this construction has thermal and glare technology to reduce heat and glare and block harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun as well as retaining the heat when it’s cold. The absence of a frame allows uninterrupted views across the grounds of the property which have been so beautifully landscaped. This also creates a feeling of being outdoors, while enjoying the comfort of being undercover, allowing the space to be enjoyed all year despite the changeable and unpredictable British weather. This renovation and glass extension are definite home goals!
