What you need to know about glass extensions

A glass box extension will usually require specialist design detailing. You and your architectural designer may come up with its layout and elevations, but it will be up to a designer, manufacturer or contractor to assist with crucial details like door systems and glazed walls. 

Of course this also depends on what you want to achieve with your glass box. One that’s constructed entirely out of glass, including the load-bearing structural glass beams and columns, is a very specialised project that is not carried out by all companies. 

A less complicated design would be a contemporary glass extension built with a more conventional structure (like a steel frame, but with floor-to-ceiling glazing and sliding doors). For this type of project, most professional residential architects and structural engineers can be right for the job, as long as they work with a glazing specialist or door supplier.
