A bright solution for 17th Century Somerset barn restoration

A bright solution for 17th Century Somerset barn restoration

A bespoke Lumen rooflight creates a large, light and creative workspace in this 17th Century barn restoration.

While Lumen provide a number of ‘off the shelf’ rooflight products, the building required something more bespoke to fit the old unconventional roof structure, in which it was to be situated.

Lumen hand made the steel framed rooflight to their exact specifications. This included electric actuators, an internal American ash frame, and high specification Pilkington glazing.

The product also needed to satisfy the Planning team from South Somerset District Council as the barn fell within the curtilage of the main Listed farmhouse. Therefore the rooflights were required to have a slender profile in order to sits in-line with the roof and remain in-keeping with the original character of the building.

Mrs Stainton, the client, said: “Both myself and the architect have been very pleased with the rooflight and the whole service we have received. I would definitely recommend Lumen to other people.”
