Flushglaze rooflights from Glazing Vision were chosen for this Edwardian terraced house, situated in a prestigious London location, just north of Alexandra Palace.
The interior space of the house fell short of expectations and the clients were looking for ways to expand usable living space. To meet these objectives, Andrew Mulroy Architects Ltd focused on designing a large kitchen extension to the rear of the property that would help to accentuate this landscape and create an open, interior space for the family.
In order to create an extension that provided sufficient lighting as well as space, a large skylight was incorporated into the design plan. Glazing Vision supplied their fixed Flushglaze rooflight for the requirement of natural lighting; this large, single pane of toughened, triple-laminated glass was installed above the dining area.
The installation of Glazing Vision’s product enabled daylight to penetrate the heart of the extension that would have otherwise been relatively dark; the rooflight not only enables great views of the sky during the day but is also an admirable feature at night, with an open snug room positioned to the side of the skylight around a wood burning stove.
Glazing Vision’s product, together with the full width sliding glass doors onto the garden, help to maximise the amount of natural daylight that now floods the new living space.
The flawless finish of the Flushglaze skylight, with its minimal framework and large area of sheer glass, complement the white-washed décor of the extension perfectly; the combination of minimal colour and seamless glass has created a floor-to-ceiling mergence of garden and sky.
What is particularly impressive about this project is how the original period character has been carefully integrated with a more contemporary style of living; the building’s traditional charm blends with the minimalist features of the kitchen extension. This North London property carries with it an air of understated elegance.
