Clapham Glass Art 1

This project for a new glass addition to the back of a listed house in South London established bere:architects, in the late 1990's, as a leading innovator in the use of structural glass. The project tested a new stacked-glass structural column design to support the glass walls and roof of the new rear conservatory, a solution which was then used for the London Wall Pizza Express project. The scheme demonstrated how modern architectural solutions can be compatible with the rigorous requirements of English Heritage for work on a Listed building.
