Designed and orchestrated as a modern and creative build, Pitched Black is a four-bedroom family home. Located in a conservation area in South London and bounded on one side by a railway cutting, the site posed many design and logistical challenges. The property is owned by Rhys Cannon, the director of Gruff Architects and features a Glazing Vision Fixed Eaves Rooflight.
Mr Cannon bought the property from a builder whom he had worked with on many previous occasions, who originally asked Mr Cannon to investigate the property’s potential for development. Then, he decided that the opportunity was too good to pass over and made an official offer to buy. After this, a lengthy negotiation process ensued – that lasted two years.
The glazing is to the side and rear, with no windows on the front faction. The house’s primary outlook is therefore the tree-lined railway. This offers the house a panoramic vista of ‘private green space’ a rare house a panoramic vista of ‘private green space’ a rare commodity in a built-up suburban area of London.
After construction was well underway, Mr Cannon and Gruff Architects looked for more opportunity for natural light in the home. Having no windows on the front elevation meant that they looked towards the possibility of obtaining a fixed Rooflight to allow a natural flow of light through the home – this is when they contacted Glazing Vision.
Mr Cannon and Gruff Architects decided to use the Fixed Eaves Rooflight for the soon to be family home. The Glazing Vision Eaves Flushglaze Rooflight comprises of two or more glazed sections – installed in both vertical and horizontal planes and joined together with a structural silicone seal.
The Eaves Flushglaze is a unique rooflight, in terms that it has two whole glass panes. Its benefits are that it allows a substantial amount of daylight into the room it is located.
