Flushglaze fixed rooflights from Glazing Vision

Bespoke fixed rooflights specified for open space extension

  • 23 Sep 2015

A number of tailored fixed rooflights from Glazing Vision’s Flushglaze range have been installed to optimise the amount of natural light entering a period property’s new extension.

As per the clients’ brief, the downstairs floor plan of the building was extended to upgrade the quality of its living space.

A dining area, bespoke kitchen and children’s play area were created, whilst the period home’s existing conservatory was replaced.

Fixed rooflights for natural lighting

Fixed Flushglaze rooflights from Glazing Vision were specified for installation above the seating area and kitchen units.

With a frameless finish, the rooflights have been designed to create the illusion of a smooth flow between glass and ceiling.

Glazing Vision’s engineers worked with the project’s architects to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the fixed rooflights. They were designed with a singular sheet of glass to increase both the amount of light entering the extension, and the amount of head height underneath.

Offering thermally efficient glazing, the rooflights were specified to ensure that the thermal performance and insulation values for the extension were accounted for. A green roof has been added to the property to improve its enviornmental credentials further.

Pleasing aesthetics

To compliment the rooflights, up and down lighters were fitted within each unit’s reveals. With this addition, the rooflights obtain a warm glow from the outside, whilst offering an illusion of lighting up on the inside.

Large sliding glass doors were installed to enable access to the property’s back garden. The doors contrast with the dark ceiling; when they are opened, the ceiling appears to be independent from its supporting steel framework.

The architects worked to merge glass materials and artificial lighting throughout the project; the end result demonstrates a consistent relationship between exterior and interior space.
