Why do award-winning practices specify the Rooflight Company?

From single house schemes such as Paise House designed by Newton Architects, to the National Trust visitors center at Mottisfont Abbey, the Rooflight Company are delighted to have been involved in such a variety of award-winning projects over the past year.

As a company founded by an architect, we are unique in understanding your needs and we share your passion for great design. This passion is demonstrated across our standard roof window ranges as well as our bespoke design service.

Working closely with architectural practices across the UK, we regularly see neo™, our answer to a contemporary skylight, and our bespoke rooflights specified on architecturally impressive buildings.   

The neo™ range is made up of 14 standard sizes all with edge-to-edge glazing, both inside and out, and can be specified with a variety of opening options including concealed jamb motors an industry first for roof windows.

Our highly regarded bespoke design service The Rooflight Studio continually work to stretch the parameters of rooflight design to provide a service that transforms almost any shape, size or colour rooflight from a drawing into a reality.

The seven award-winning projects below are examples of how our rooflights' fine detailing fit seamlessly and unobtrusively within the architect's schemes. To find out more about neo™ click here or visit our dedicated bespoke website www.rooflightstudio.co.uk
