Property Renovation – How to get the perfect glass box extension?

We enjoyed this article by Sarah Warwick in “Real Homes,” on glass box extensions as a part of your property renovation project. We’d like to share it with you.


‘While a conservatory can be a relatively inexpensive alternative to a more solid extension, a glass extension will almost certainly be more costly.

‘You will probably want it to flow from the rest of the house, which may mean compensating for the areas of glass by increasing insulation levels elsewhere or carrying out other energy-saving measures. High-specification glass, the structural solution and alterations to the rest of the house are all costs that are likely to be greater than if you build something more conventional.

‘Fees are likely to be higher for the architect or designer and structural engineer, too, as more work will be involved. You may also have to employ a thermal consultant, unless you’re building something more solid. Budget for a minimum budget of £3,000 per m².’
