Utilising two bespoke fixed rooflights, this 1920s Tudor style property in Bristol, now benefits from an abundance of natural daylight.
The homeowners wanted to maximise the potential of their location and sought the help of DHV Architects to help them realise their ambitions. After initial discussions, detailed plans were put in place with the intent of re-energising this aging and outdated property. Two stylish extensions were proposed with plenty of contemporary glazing, helping to update the property fit for the 21st century.
The addition of rooflights to the larger extension created a link between inside and outside, resulting in a much needed connection to the outdoors. Having worked previously with Glazing Vision, DHV Architects were quick to source advice from their technical specification team. The balcony features a Glazing Vision fixed walk on rooflight, and the kitchen area benefits from an Eaves roof light.
The Glazing Vision ‘eaves’ Flushglaze rooflight comprises of two or more glazed sections installed in both vertical and horizontal planes, joined together with a structural silicone seal. Internally, the eaves Flushglaze unit provides the same frameless views, resulting in a seamless transition between inside and outside.
“We love the look of both rooflights and think that they create the wow factor with their stylish looks” explains Elke Dittrich, Director at DHV Architects. “They help to fill the living space with natural light, even on gloomy days”.
