IQ Glass Project Wins RIBA Award 2012
IQ Glass were specified as the glazing specialists on a stunning contemporary extension, set in the picturesque countryside of the Cotswolds. The property, designed by Found Associates, has won the RIBA 2012 Award for a Private house and is now in the running for the prestigious Sterling Prize.
The Linear extension spanned from a 620m² Grade II listed cottage with a frameless glass connection. Found Associates, designed the renovation to be as energy efficient as possible, ensuring that a number of well used rooms followed the path of the sun reducing heat loss.
IQ Glass fitted the south elevation with a wall of glass, incorporating Minimal Windows Sliding Doors, giving a fantastic open view across two 13th century lakes. Strategic placements of glass roof lights and Minimal Windows are a brilliant addition to this architectural design, making the innovative design functional as well as aesthetically striking.
