Rooflights from Lonsdale lovely for London home

  • 27 Feb 2018

Custom made rooflights from Lonsdale have provided copious amounts of natural light and act as a major focal point for an extension in a West London home.

The original property needed updating, with the kitchen and dining room having to be remodelled as they suffered poor connection to the rear garden.

North facing, these dark and dingy rooms encountered minimum daylight from the modest sized windows.

Architect Simon Feneley reconfigured the ground floor, providing a utility and cloakroom off the entrance hall, with a formal sitting room at the front of the property.

A full height sliding pocket door reveals a newly extended family room with a panoramic view of the garden.

The roof of the extension is asymmetrical about the axis from the front door, providing increased floor to ceiling height and avoiding a long continuous corridor. 

Sunlight falls upon the polished concrete flooring which runs throughout the
ground floor, with daylight washing down the full height herringbone wall tiling in the contemporary kitchen.
