Glazing Vision has transformed a residence in East Dulwich to maximise both space and light with Flushglaze rooflights.
Stephen Blowers, co-founder of Design cubed Architects and himself the client encountered numerous challenges as both project manager and co-builder.
The exterior walls, composed of traditional blockwork and brick, were built to the outer perimeter of the plot, with courtyard areas created in the two corners diagonally opposite one another.
Blowers heavily invested in large amounts of glazing in the form of bi-fold doors out to the courtyards, floor to ceiling windows elsewhere, and 2 precision-engineered, Flushglaze rooflights from Glazing Vision.
The rooflights have added to the sense of airiness and height inside the property. The glazing brightens the interior spaces below and negates the need for artificial light during the day. One rooflight runs the length of the wide, entrance hallway, providing a subtle bridge to the open-plan kitchen-diner at the centre of the house.
The other rooflight is strategically located to one side of the adjoining, “sunken” living room, bringing much needed natural daylight to the rear wall of this space. They also provide solar heat gains.
