IQ Projects Featured on Rightmove ‘Innovative Extension Ideas’

IQ’s residential development project, The Crown, was recognised for its innovative rooftop extension.

Rightmove recently wrote an article on ‘Innovative Extension Ideas’ where they explored various extension types, including glass roof extensions on residential development buildings.

The featured project, The Crown, utilised structural glazing to provide a glass box on the top floor of the luxury apartments. Often in commercial architecture, where square footage is limited in city locations, extending upwards is the perfect solution. When extending up rather than out, a glass roof is a great way to create light-filled spaces with the illusion of bigger rooms and taller ceilings.

Modern apartments are known for incorporating as much glass as possible to achieve a luxury aesthetic, particularly important when considering luxury interior design schemes. These high-rise buildings can create penthouse apartments and rooftop wintergardens, with the use of our highly technical roof glazing systems.

Although The Crown was a new build, our glazing systems can be engineered with a modular approach if needed, constructing the glass structure on site prior to installation. This method is suited to sensitive projects that require less stress on the original building structure.

Many luxury offices, such as our Saville Row project (pictured left), incorporate glass box extensions on the top floor, giving their employees a space to relax and enjoy the surrounding views. This is one way to introduce Resimercial design into workplace environments.
