A cottage makeover
The double-height space is a favourite of the owners
The extension features two sets of Ecoline folding doors, one of which is a floating door which opens from both ends and can be pushed to either side
Replacing an ageing, chilly conservatory, the extension is used in all weathers with the Ecoline folding doors providing quick access to the garden
Curtain walling, fixed rooflights and Ecoline folding doors combine to create an elegant and light-filled building
Shaped panels of the curtain walling echo the widths of the folding doors below
As part of the makeover, the cottage was fitted with ODC tilt and turn windows and Combiline French doors
The Ecoline folding doors are fitted with Solarlux pleated blinds to provide shading. They push neatly and unobtrusively to the top edge when not in use.
Distinctive and innovative glazing was added to each gable of this cottage in Oxfordshire to give greater access to the garden as well as to introduce more light and space to the main living areas. A double-height extension on one gable, with shaped curtain-walling above and two sets of bifold doors below, creates a truly impressive space, to house the kitchen as well as a large light-flooded hall and landing. The second gable has two sets of French doors leading onto the garden.
