Too Much Glass??

Hi, I need some advise on the back extension of my house. The architect has put in a lot of Windows and although it looks good I am concerned that:

1. My house will become like a greenhouse and get extremely hot in the Summer.

2. Would loose heat in the winter as glass may not be as efficient as brick.

3. Security is compromised as all it takes is for someone to break a pane and they're in; plus a would be thief can see the whole ground floor.

Points 1 and 2 are more of a concern as point 3 could be solved by simply putting up curtains/blinds.

My house is in London and South West facing.

3D render of the plan attached.

Any advice or experiences from anyone that has similarly large expanse of glass would be really appreciated!
