Located in the south of Wales, Celtic Manor is a five star luxury resort which incorporates both leisure and residential facilities within the two thousand acres of land in which it is set.
Architect Stewart Gregory of AJ100 Practice Scott Brownrigg was given the task of transforming some existing barns and a disused farm house into luxury homes on the recently acquired Hanies Court area of the growing site. It was crucial to maintain the traditional aesthetics of the barns and because of this the Planning Officer recommended that the original Conservation Rooflight® should be specified.
After consultation with the Rooflight Company, Scott Brownrigg specified fourteen CR3 roof windows. To maximise natural light in specific areas of the new buildings, Studio-Range linking was used to provide four sets of linked Conservation Rooflights®. The Studio-Linked option allows roof windows to be linked using a T-bar. Any number of the same size roof windows can be joined together. The result is a row of roof windows which maximise light ingress into the space below.
Each of the barns required a new roof to be constructed. The Rooflight Company worked closely with both the architect and the planning officer to aid with the installation stages to ensure the project was completed within the required timescales.
To continue with the more modern interior design, each roof window was fitted with a chrome pole winder and where a higher level of privacy was required roller blinds in white were supplied.
Stewart Gregory, Scott Brownrigg Architects said: The friendly working relationship and understanding of the desired requirements meant that the overall performance of the project from conception to completion was trouble free. We are actively looking to use the Conservation Rooflight® again in other projects where there is the need for the high performance and visual appearance that these roof windows provide.
