Shortlisting Luxury Categories: Trombé, Glasshouse over £50,000

Trombé Ltd have been shortlisted for the ID&A Awards 2014, Glasshouse over £50,000 category, with their project of a single story glass extension with walk on roof, spanning the rear of a Georgian town house.


We were asked to create a large bright sunny room that brought the outside in. They wanted a space that flowed into the garden and back into the house.


There were existing external steps from the first floor to the garden which had to be replaced. This was done by using walk on glass in the roof, creating a terrace with new glass balustrade and timber stairs down to the garden.


The whole space is usable, including the roof. The client said what she loves most about the space is whilst inside she can be surrounded by the elements, whether it’s sunny, raining or a starry night.


The design flows, and links the house in a spacious open way. The existing house has quite small rooms, but this extension has provided much needed space and flow between the house and garden. Bringing the outside in. The doors used in the project are new 22mm minimal frame screens form Trombé Ltd.
