Our brief for this glass box extension in Pinner was to open up the existing space with a bright new dining room. Our clients wanted the space to give clear views out to the courtyard garden, and to make this feel part of the house.
Our design for the glass box extension works well at both day and night time. The structural opening up of the house creates a spacious dining room, and the glass box feels part of the same space.
We planned the space to include a living area at the far end of the plan, with a fin wall dividing the rooms. The dining room works well for entertaining, and the living area gives a more relaxed feel.
We chose a light tone natural stone floor tile, with under floor heating to give a clean look to the space. We used a darker tile on the exterior, and clad the garden wall in red cedar timber boards.
Lighting a space with a glass box extension can be difficult due to the lack of walls and ceilings. We gave extra care to this, as well as the exterior lights.
