Shortlisting Luxury Categories: IQ Glass UK, Dalston House

IQ Glass UK have their second project shortlisted for the International Design & Architecture Awards 2014, with their project Dalston House, going into the Glasshouse over £50,000 category.


This project is a prime example of a rear glass extension and internal renovation in London – with integrating minimal framed sliding doors, minimal steel supports, aluminium cladding and frameless structural glazing to form a coherent contemporary extension.


The brief was to create a family house that was minimal but not minimalist, with sleek spaces that still had personality. A home was created that preserved the character of the existing building and merged this with exciting modern design.


The major architectural addition came in the form of two slick black boxes to the rear of the property. These structures enclose a new staircase that leads down to large open-plan basement level, an area that forms the social heart of the property.
