Glazing Vision rooflights unlock potential of extension

  • 21 Apr 2022

Three Glazing Vision rooflights were key to unlocking the potential of a north-east facing extension. Flooding the modern extension with natural daylight, the fixed rooflights have not only helped to transform the property into a light, airy, space, but have also inspired a new central hub for a family to enjoy.

Keen to update their disjointed layout, the owners of this Victorian property looked to re-energise their whole property with a new modernised extension which would help to brighten their previously dark home. Key to this project was a new feature room which would help bring the family together and allow them to enjoy spending time at home again. 

The homeowners sought out Oasys Property Solutions, who created a new concept which would allow a generous sized kitchen/dining/living space, filled with an abundance of natural daylight; perfect for the family environment that was sought after and would also help to promote both wellbeing and concentration levels in an age when working from home is becoming more common. 

Sure-fire winner

However, with a north-east facing extension, Simon Heckford, Director at Oasys Property Solution, knew it was important to add rooflights  into the extension to maximise the natural light within the new area.  

Having used Glazing Vision on multiple occasions, Simon was confident that their technical knowledge would help him to source the rooflights required. 

Similarly, the economical benefits this would provide the homeowners was a sure-fire winner; helping to reduce the need for artificial light and helping to reduce their carbon footprint. 

Glazing Vision

Glazing Vision were able to specify two flat Flushglaze rooflights, and a wall abutted bespoke rooflight. This allowed the homeowners to benefit from natural daylight throughout the entirety of the extension and helped to flow through the rest of the property. 

An additional benefit of these Glazing Vision VisionVent rooflights was that they offered excellent overall thermal performance with concealed insulation, as tested and certified by the British Board of Agrement. 

Securing roof access 

The single SkyHatch Roof Access rooflight was  specified by the architects to fulfil two criteria: to provide a valuable source of daylight to  the third bedroom, but, more importantly, it provided a clever, cost effective way of accessing the roof space. Given the structure  of the roof, a mix of flat central membrane  and a perimeter thatch, and the likelihood of maintenance and cleaning issues occurring in  future years, RB Studio needed to ensure that  there would be an easy, unobstructed route out.

The finished result is a modernised extension which really adds a ‘wow factor’ to the property and offers a new space for the whole family to enjoy, whether it’s entertaining guests or spending family time together. The updated space has also generated a newfound connection with the garden space, and with stunning features throughout, has become a real centrepiece of the home.
