Glass beams let the light in to Goldfinger house

A narrow passageway between two wings of an Erno Goldfinger-designed house in Surrey has been replaced with this all-glass conservatory.

The Grade-II listed house in Windlesham, Surrey, was built in 1963 and is one of Goldfinger’s last domestic projects built extensively with structural timber rather than concrete, which became the Hungarian-born architect’s favourite building material.

The roof and walls of the conservatory are supported by two 7m external structural glass beams designed by Malishev Wilson Engineers – believed to be the longest single pieces used in a building in the UK.

If you like what you see, the house can be all yours for £14 million.
