Case Study: Private Residence - London
Project Synopsis: Steel and glass frames extend this superb rear extension
A new double height rear extension and complete reconfiguration at lower ground, ground, first and second floor levels has transformed this Chelsea home. Previously ‘a dark and claustrophobic environment’ Ade Architecture and Colour Interiors have turned the property into a light and spacious family home.
Two steel and glass screens by Clement Windows Group have been used ingeniously to create an abundance of light and an illusion of space. The screens, which include a series of fixed panes and doors, not only bring the outside in but they also open up access to the courtyard area.
The bespoke fenestration at the rear of the property was manufactured using the Clement EB24 range with genuine T bars, allowing for a 24mm argon filled glass unit. RAL 7021 (Black Grey) polyester powder paint was chosen to complement the contemporary style of the house.
