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 - Georgian glazing Bar windows style

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 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.
