Fixed circular rooflights for historic home building

Fixed circular rooflights for historic home building

Glazing Vision’s Flushglaze fixed and circular rooflights were installed within a fortress-like home, located on the shore of St Ouen’s Bay in West Jersey.

Glazing Vision’s Flushglaze Circular rooflight was key to both maximising the amount of daylight falling into the pivotal central area of the house, as well as adding a modern aesthetic to the historical overtones of the ‘keep’.

The stairwell is capped with a large, circular Flushglaze rooflight from Glazing Vision. Precision-engineered to meet the bespoke dimensions, this circular rooflight offered a number of design benefits: no visible internal framework ensured the amount of light entering this central space was maximized and the high ceiling not compromised.

The lack of visible fixings ensured a completely flush external finish. The absence of bulky capping systems meant that the rooflight will not attract dirt or spoil the view. During the day the stairwell and central space are now bathed in daylight and have unadulterated sky-only views, whilst at night the rooflight reflects the LED lights installed below, and provides a fabulous vista of the stars above.

Given the exposure of the property to the ravages of the Jersey weather the Glazing Vision circular rooflight also offered critical technical features: the double glazed unit was BBA certified, proven to resist wind and rain, offering excellent thermal performance, structural integrity and durability of paint finishes and sealants.

Two rectangular, fixed Flushglaze rooflights from Glazing Vision were also installed on the property: one above the master bedroom (dressing area) and one above the master en-suite.
