Scenario Architecture project featured in Grand Designs Magazine

Scenario Architecture - YES Glazing Solutions - As featured in Grand Designs Magazine, March 2017YES Glazing solutions are delighted to see this stunning contemporary design by Scenario Architecture in the March edition of Grand Designs Magazine.

Ingenious use of our glazing products has helped complete the conversion of a Victorian terrace in need of considerable modernisation.

Although the designers wanted to open the layout and bring in additional light, it was important to create a sense of separation between the different parts of the home.

Instead of a completely open-plan design, they wanted to create what they refer to as a “broken plan”. Different zones within a space are defined by something other than walls.

A gorgeous glass balustrade creates an instant connection between the ground and lower-ground floors. This also maximises the natural light. A clever concealed fixing system allows the glass to sit flush with the stair blocks, fully revealing the stunning herringbone floor.

Scenario Architecture rebuilt an original side extension on the lower-ground floor with a glazed roof. This allowed natural light into space at the rear of the house. A large rooflight angled downwards to connect to a contemporary glazed roof over the rebuilt side extension also unites the split levels nicely.

Tilting the skylight directs your eye down towards the kitchen and rear garden making the space feel much bigger.

A section of wall in the living area was cut out and seamlessly glazed to enhance the feeling of connected spaces. As a result this striking feature offers a glimpse of a library zone created in the former cloakroom.

Clever use of features to link separate areas extends to the garden too. A fabulous built in window seat creates an almost magical spot to sit and read whilst enjoying outside views.

Beautiful bi-fold doors seamlessly join the indoor and outdoor spaces. A polished concrete flooring extends beyond the doors to further enhance the amalgamation and integration of the different spaces.

Our surveyors worked hard to realise Scenario Architecture’s vision. Some cunning solutions with very precise measurements made this a challenging project.
