An amazing glass link creates a contemporary addition to this period property.

This grade II listed house has been renovated and extended with a modern addition, connected via a glass link. Homeowner, Norman, project managed the build and enlisted EcoHaus to source and install high quality, energy efficient windows and doors. “When building a home, windows are more important than the walls,” he says.

EcoHaus suggested a mixture of triple-glazed Internorm timber-aluminium products for the project, which offer the charm of wood internally and a low-maintenance metal exterior. Norman was attracted by the units’ energy performance, sleek visual appeal and modern-day features and hardware. These help to create a home that seamlessly blends heritage style with contemporary aesthetics.

For the link room between the house and extension, EcoHaus installed frameless HX330 Panorama windows with bespoke glass. The exceptionally low glass-to-frame ratio gives the effect of a glass wall. It’s a light-touch connection that helps blend old and new. The slim sightlines  go together with the rest of the alu-clad fenestration. This ties the project together and creates a well-connected, bright and ambient living space all year round.

The windows are all Internorm HV350, with an inner timber core and outer aluminium casing. The range is triple glazed as standard and can deliver very low U-values. This impressive thermal performance is combined with the sleek sightlines externally, enabling large panes of glass, flooding the property with ample natural light and allowing the building to retain its heritage charm.

Similarly, Internorm’s HS330 timber-aluminium lift and slide doors were specified as the robust frames can hold large panes of glass – maximising views out. The house is in a rural location, so having an unobstructed vista of the outside world really amplifies its beauty.
