Walk on Rooflight 

How to maximise living space is a common challenge for architects, especially in urban areas.

The owner of this residential property in Oxford wanted to transform an unusable flat roof area with a domed skylight into an off-bedroom terrace, without reducing natural light ingress to the room below when removing the dome light. 

The design of the Plateau Walk on Rooflight allowed the client to maximise the whole of the roof area as desired. 

"The Plateau Walk on Rooflight was researched and specified by Tom Man from Peroli Man Architects as being the perfect product for what the client was trying to achieve. 

"The technical information and support from the Rooflight Company was a key factor to the success of this project, having never installed a Walk on Rooflight before. They were able to answer all of our questions and queries throughout the project from design to installation to ensure all went smoothly. 

"The client is extremely happy as it turned out exactly as she had imagined. We will definitely be working with you again on future projects."
