Modern glass conservatory extension to existing property in Highgate designed by Malishev Engineers together with exclusive architect and contractor 800 group. Extension comprised of two glass “boxes” linked by a specially designed structural steel portal frame which provides stability in one direction. Stability in the other direction, provided by the glass itself. The extension has got few other innovations in its structural design, one of which is the use of composite thermally broken doors structurally to resist lateral load of the side elevation as well as support of the heavy double glazed spandrel panels above the doors. As a result, side elevations were built without using any mullions at all, which contributes to its stunning appearance. Also Malishev Engineers were instrumental in designing specially concealed drainage details to minimize visual appearance.
