Glen Thomas Architecture’s latest project, ‘The Glasshouse’, is a radically contemporary development of a stunning 3 storey Victorian house in a Welsh conservation area, for a couple and their two children.
Although the clients brief was to preserve much of the original elements of the property, their main desire was LIGHT. In a dark, damp old Victorian structure, this was a big task to undertake.

The Welsh sailing community will be reinvigorated this autumn with the opening of a striking new National Sailing Academy and Events Centre. Situated on the Pwllheli coast amongst breathtaking scenery, the center is partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government and Gwynedd Council. This state-of-the-art facility exhibits beautifully constructed Kebony decked balconies, seating areas and cladded curved walls. The use of Kebony’s wood has fashioned a beautifully crafted space, which perfectly complements the natural beauty of the Welsh coastline, while maintaining an environmentally friendly approach to the build.
