Lumen Conservation Heritage rooflights were chosen to create a better, more practical kitchen-dining space at this listed property in South Devon.
Careful development opened up the roof structure to provide height and daylight to the long space. The kitchen layout was developed to make the most of the level change in the building.
A large existing window was knocked open into double doors and a new lowered patio area formed at the same level as the house. The resulting space is a generous entertaining space that is also hugely practical for their young family and developing garden.
To maximise the light entering the new space the client installed three Lumen Conservation Heritage HR4 rooflights, with fixed casements. These were supplied with the additional protection of a coastal paint finish to protect them from the environment in which the property is situated.
The low profile design of the Lumen Heritage rooflights satisfied the Building Conservation officers and ensured the external aesthetics of the property remained in-keeping with the original building.
The exceptional quality of the Heritage rooflight, with its American Ash interior lining and high specification Pilkington glazing, also provides a stunning finish to the fabulous new space.
