What Houzz contributors are saying:
Turn down the noiseIt’s not just heat or cold that can be a concern. Noise from outside can also cause problems in a glass extension. One option is glass that has acoustic insulation. This works by both reflecting noise back outside, and absorbing sound.
The glass box extensionPlenty of light and glass also make it into Brady’s dream home. “I adore very modern conservatories and huge glass panes – they provide so much light and a feeling of spaciousness. Oh and, of course, as it’s my fantasy home, someone else would clean it!”
Link with glassIf you have, or have your eye on, a property that has two separate buildings, glass can prove the ideal material with which to link them. It connects the spaces without losing the sense of openness, or the novelty of having two buildings. Here, the full height of the glass and its slim frames create a strong connection with the garden – glorious when the weather is good. In the winter, a space like this could be made to feel cosier with curtains or blinds, or you could embrace the frost and revel in the fact that you’re warm and cosy.
Box it in Glass boxes allow a window on the world from several angles. In contrast to the sharp lines of this extension, the comfortable sofa and surprising parquet flooring add warmth, making this a comfortable space from which to enjoy the view on a daily basis.Check out more great glass-box extensions
Join togetherAn innovative glazed space like this could link two rooms in a new-build or elegantly join two old buildings, such as a farmhouse and nearby barn, equally well. Architecture that embraces the pauses in the flow of a building is creative and thoughtful, and results in beautifully conceived spaces such as this one.Be inspired by glass box extensions
