A fixed Flushglaze rooflight from Glazing Vision has been used as part of a spacious residential extension to provide high levels of natural light to the family home’s new focal point.
Situated in London just north of Alexandra Palace, the homeowners wanted to extend the living space within the the Edwardian terraced house. To meet this objective, Andrew Mulroy Architects designed a large kitchen extension to the rear of the property that would help accentuate the surrounding landscape and create an open, interior space for the family.
The ground floor plan, which was originally segregated into three rooms, a small breakfast room, a smaller kitchen and a living room were replaced with a large kitchen diner that extends outwards into the garden. In order to provide sufficient lighting as well as space, a large skylight was incorporated into the design plan.
Glazing Vision’s Flushglaze rooflight was chosen to provide the natural light required for the project. A large, single pane of toughened, triple-laminated glass was installed above the dining area to enable daylight to enter the heart of the extension, which would have otherwise been relatively dark.
Glazing Vision says the rooflight not only enables great views of the sky during the day but is also an admirable feature at night, with an open snug room positioned to the side of the skylight around a wood-burning stove.
The Flushglaze rooflight, together with the full width sliding glass doors onto the garden, help to maximise the amount of natural daylight that now floods the new living space. The minimal framework of the skylight, alongside its large area of sheer glass, complements the white-washed d‚cor of the extension.
