Glazing Vision has recently supplied one of its Flushglaze fixed rooflights to fill a newly built church extension with natural daylight, creating a bright open space for the North Oxford church.
Adrian James Architects worked on the creation of the front extension, developing a welcoming entrance intended to complement the rest of the listed and loved church. Consequently, Glazing Vision was chosen to supply a lighting solution to flood the new narthex space with plenty of natural daylight.
A generously sized multipart Flushglaze roof light, measuring 3922 x 2566mm, was chosen along with three smaller fixed Flushglaze rooflights to provide natural light into both the toilet and kitchen areas. The new modular Flushglaze rooflight compliments the church and provides a clear, frameless internal view of the new west gable window, emphasising the importance of the church as both a community and religious centre.
With the rooflight running between two existing buttresses, there were some complications as the architects learnt that standard kerb detail couldn’t be switched over to an abutment detail mid-run. However, with the advice of Glazing Vision, this was not difficult to resolve and helped to create a positive working relationship, once again, between both Adrian James Architects and Glazing Vision.
Ryan Taylor of Adrian James Architects comments: “the finished result is excellent; installation of the rooflight was straightforward and the units appear seamless. The minimal detail is ideal from an architectural perspective.”
