Residential Property, Yorkshire
This residential property was built in 1926 in an arts and crafts style and it has recently been extended to a very high standard.
Architect Giuliano Todeschini wanted to extend a large span of floor to ceiling glazing in the vertical walls on to the roof of the extension, but did not believe that it would be possible to achieve their desired look with standard skylights.
What was also fundamental, was that the chosen rooflight had to unobtrusively ‘slide’ into the roof plane of the extension, without creating what would look like an intrusion amongst the many roof planes of the main body of the house.
Upon seeing the drawings, the Rooflight Company suggested that the glazing panels could in fact match the vertical panels by omitting the intermediate glazing bars and designing a bespoke rooflight especially for this project. The architect jumped at this opportunity.
