Think clearly Making alterations to listed buildings can be a long and arduous process, but a glass-box extension can present an unexpected but effective method of modernising, because, counterintuitive as it may seem, planning authorities often favour this approach. In this cottage setting, the glass extension didn’t impact on the original building, and sliding doors were chosen to allow easy access to the patio.See the rest of this Grade II listed thatched cottage

The glass structure also meant there were a few heat and ventilation ramifications. Double glazing ensures the temperature doesn’t fluctuate too much in the winter, but the sliding doors – chosen so as not to impede the way out to the patio – need to be left open on sunny summer days to let the breeze through. The oak for the breakfast bar had to be treated with a UV finish to protect it from the sun, too.Discover a great selection of alternatives to bi-fold patio doors

Cuisine intérieur et extérieur à la fois.

se protéger du soleil : Avec des films anti-UV Plus les fenêtres sont nombreuses et plus les risques de surchauffe sont grands. En effet, les rayons du soleil se servent des surfaces vitrées pour accumuler la chaleur en intérieur. Difficile donc d’imaginer pouvoir utiliser sa véranda en cas de canicule sans appliquer sur ses surfaces vitrées un film anti-chaleur. Ce film magique, à coller sur l’extérieur du vitrage, crée une barrière anti-UV et empêche ainsi la chaleur de se propager.

This is seriously clever... I love the idea of being outside, but temperature controlled.
