Maximum light for a north-facing extension

French doors as an alternative to bifolds or sliding doors

Aluminium glass structure with bespoke 'crittall-style' windows installed in a shaker-style kitchen extension

This project conceived by architects Gruff Ltd uses a simple and classic material palette of brick, metal and glass to provide a new kitchen and dining space within a generously sized rear extension to a large three-storey Victorian property in South East London.

The aluminium framed ‘Crittall style’ windows and large rooflight maximise daylight to the north facing rooms. The horizontal profiles align and run across the glazing on three sides of the extension.
