    There are two rectangular spaces, staggered on plan, with the opening/sliding door between them. The projecting kitchen/garden sitting area (on the left in the photo) is 3.75m wide by 8m long; the space with the dining table and main sitting area (on the right in the photo) is 3.87m wide by 9m long. The overall width across both spaces is just under 8m.

    the metalwork is fantastic. Really nice to see the connection between the building and the garden being so well considered.

    Hi. The sliding doors were fabricated and installed by IQ Glazing.

    Hi Rob,

    the brise soleil is made from galvanised steel and was fabricated by the contractor's steel supplier to our drawings during the build. The 'arms' that project out from the wall above the glazed sliders are made from 6mm plate steel and these are bolted on to the steelwork holding up the facade (this is concealed behind the brickwork). The struts between the arms are 25 by 25 steel angles.

    It may be possible to get a brise soleil made up as a 'bolt on' to an existing wall but you would need input from a structural engineer to confirm that the brickwork is man enough to deal with the forces that would be put in to it by the cantilever arms.

    Hope this helps,

open - thin lines + brick vs modern
