Glass extensions to listed buildings

Both English Heritage and local authority Conservation Officers will often recommend that 'glass box' extensions are used when extending out from a Listed Building. A glass addition that is architecturally modern, and has a minimal impact upon the host building, as they make a clear distinction between old and new will often be viewed more favourably than a traditional extension or Victorian style conservatory.

Once acclimatized to the idea, and having seen the end result, our clients have been delighted with our contemporary additions to their historic homes.
