    @rainbowgold1 Thank you for your interest, the tiles came from a trade supplier in Italy. They are as you correctly surmised Porcelain.

    Hi, sadly there are too many variables for me to give a simple answer is are you in a conservation area, is your house listed etc etc. If you want to get in touch with our offer we can offer you initial advice. Thanks for your question.

    It really depends on the size of the extension, the existing house configuration and also the access to the rear of the property. We would be more than happy to provide a quotation if you want to email us. Thank you

    The glass is supplied by a local glazier who works in the Islington area. I'm sorry but I do not know of a supplier who would work in Scotland - but a 'structural glass supplier' search on google might help.

Cheryl Freedman added this to 12 Ways to Make Your Glass Extension a Useable Space26 February 2017

Light it upWithout walls or ceilings to fit them to, appropriate lighting can be a challenge in glass extensions. However, in this side-return extension, an angled wall light on a remaining section of wall solves the problem, and can be pointed where required, to create pools of light.

Brian O'Tuama Architects added this to Ask an Architect: What’s the Best Way to Add a Conservatory?14 April 2015

Open up with super-skinny framesNarrow frames on this small, all-glass extension mean the boundary between inside and out almost disappears. Thanks also to the same flooring being used inside and outside, and by keeping the floors level with each other, the space feels much larger than it actually is.

Luisa Rollenhagen added this to Ask an Expert: What is the One Design Rule You Live By?25 March 2015

Respect individual lifestylesAndrew Dunning of APD Interiors believes a homeowner’s lifestyle is key:‘I always remember I’m designing homes for the owners. It’s not for me to be self-indulgent with my designs and include the latest product I’ve fallen in love with if it’s not right for the project. You need to consider the lifestyle of the homeowner and understand how they live. ‘For example, if they are total foodies, you need to plan kitchen storage and appliances meticulously. But if they eat out, can you reduce the kitchen size? Designing for families has its own challenges – sharp corners and shiny surfaces often aren’t child friendly.’

Cathy Rebecca added this to Architecture: What You Need to Consider When Planning a Rear Extension22 October 2014

Using an architectArchitects can help with everything from initial design sketches to full project management. ‘We offer our services on a menu, so a client can go as far with us as they want,’ explains Hugo Tugman. ‘Some just want initial advice on the design, while others want help with permissions and regulations. Others still want us to project manage the whole thing. The more you use us, the more it costs… but the more control you have over what you get and the eventual price. We help people to avoid pitfalls and getting ripped off. Having an expert on board gives you weight when dealing with contractors and builders.’‘The more detailed the drawings and the more tied down the specification, the lower the risk of overruns, which is one of the biggest reasons costs escalate,’ says Jerry. ‘An architect comes up with a fixed scheme and makes it clear exactly what is required and expected from the builder. The more you spend on drawings and specification, the more you take risk out of the project,’ he adds.
