Partnering with Concept Eight Architects
4 December 2020
It’s always exciting to find like-minded partners to work with and our project in Weybridge was no exception. Surrey-based Concept Eight Architects specialise in residential architecture, creating unique homes across London and Southern England. Having seen their portfolio, we were thrilled to work with them to achieve the vision of the Glass Slot House.
A consistent, modern glazing aesthetic
As the name suggests, glazing was a critical part of the vision for the large-scale renovation and extension. A full-width rear extension was added to the back of the property, creating a new, large open plan kitchen, living and dining space. It was vital that each of the architectural glazing elements featured created a consistent, modern aesthetic.
Chris, an Associate at Concept Eight explains:
Corner sliding doors were an integral part of the design for the extension. By featuring the floating corner, the stunning outdoor entertaining space is seamlessly linked to the open plan kitchen, living and dining space, creating zoned areas framed with stunning glazing.
Effortless, smooth movement with CP130 sliding doors
The Reynaers CP130 Sliding Door system features industry-leading maximum pane sizes to achieve uninterrupted, panoramic views. As well as configuration options of single, double or triple track to achieve the desired opening system, the CP130 incorporates the lift & slide mechanism. Lift & slide refers to the way in which the sliding doors open. Rather than a static rail and small rollers, with a life & slide door, the sash is lifted and hovers above the frame, giving you an effortless, smooth opening movement.

Connecting the home and garden with glazing
Each and every piece of glazing we install is manufactured to the exact needs of the project, however, some projects demand a completely bespoke solution.
Sometimes known as up & over glazing or glazed links, Pure Glass Eaves is a style of fixed glazing which connects an overhead glazed panel with vertical glazing. To allow maximum light into the kitchen, an elegant frameless Pure Glass Eaves feature has pride of place and beautifully connects the gardens to the kitchen.

Working with one supplier for the rear extension was important to ensure that we achieved consistency across the different glazing elements needed.

Pitched roof glazing
We’re often asked about roof glazing solutions for a pitched roof. There are several systems which provide different features and our Project Managers can work with you to find the right one for your project.
With a breathtaking new entrance and staircase in the heart of the property, the addition of a 2540mm x 1260mm single pane Pure Glass Flat Roof Light within the pitched roof above, bathes the entrance in natural light.
