5 stunning rooflight designs from around the World

5 stunning rooflight designs from around the World

Rooflights have become an extremely popular choice not only in the home, but also for schools, offices, and hospitals. Here is a look at some of the most eye catching rooflight designs from around the globe.

1.Sydney house extension
Stepped skylights twist up to a peak at one side of this extension designed by Nick Bell Design for the rear of a Sydney residence. Local architects Nick Bell Design wanted to create a light and airy kitchen, living and dining room for the property named Rosebridge, which is located on a south-facing plot in the city's North Shore suburb.

2.Strasbourg tennis clubhouse
This building features dome-like skylights, serpentine bar and brightly coloured floors. Local architects Paul Le Quernec rebuilt the centre to include a series of swooping forms that reference the movement of a tennis ball. This resulted in a central pathway that curves around volumes with rounded walls.

3.Members' room at the Victoria & Albert Museum
London studio Carmody Groarke has completed a top-lit members' room at the Victoria & Albert Museum, featuring mirror installations that provide reflected views of spaces inside and outside the building. The large space is illuminated from above by existing roof lights, and daylight also enters through windows that overlook The Sackler Courtyard.

4.Vaulted skylights for London home
Six vaulted skylights form the roof of this west London house by architecture studio vPPR, which also features two sunken courtyards. Named Vault House, the two-storey residence was built over the site of a former taxi garage in Hammersmith, surrounded on all sides by neighbouring properties. This situation made it difficult to add windows on any of the walls, so London-based vPPR had to find a new way to bring daylight into the building. They added six skylights on the roof, as well as two courtyards that function as huge lightwells.

5.Jaguar Land Rover
Giant saw-tooth sections containing north-facing windows channel daylight into the machine and assembly halls of this car manufacturing factory for Jaguar Land Rover in England's West Midlands. In addition to the roof lights that provide natural illumination to the factory floor, glass is used throughout the building to create views between different areas and towards the surrounding landscape.
