Glazing Vision supplied a sliding, retractable rooflight to create an outdoor terrace in a five-storey Victorian townhouse in Chelsea.
Stephen Fletcher Architects worked on the site, aiming to increase the sense of space throughout the restricted property.
The long and narrow townhouse has been transformed into an impressive private residence with a new basement level beneath the footprint of the house, vaults and most of the rear garden.
The transformation involved the relocation of an architecturally impressive staircase, that only the front facade and the roof of the original house remain.
Glazing Vision’s Sliding Over Rooflight was made to a bespoke size to fit the limited roof space. The double-glazed rooflight abuts a fixed wall on one short side and is supported on tracks installed on the roof and is framed on the adjacent side by a glass weathered upstand.
It features a sliding mechanism that is electronically controlled at the touch of a button retracting the entire section of glazing, thereby providing an unimpeded, 100% clear-opening access from the stairwell out onto the roof terrace.
The Sliding Over Rooflight therefore maximises the amount of natural daylight within the property.
