Rooflights from Lumen were chosen for the renovation of a Grade II Listed William & Mary style property, dating from 1693, in a quaint village near Cheltenham.
The extensive renovation project included a large side extension, which would house their new kitchen and informal lounge area.
One of the key considerations in satisfying the Conservation Officer and achieving planning approval, was the specification of Conservation style rooflights. These would be a major feature of the new extension, and would need to be of a style sympathetic to the original period property, and flush sitting with the new slate roof.
Lumen supplied two large bespoke Lumen Heritage rooflights - one with an electric opening mechanism and one fixed shut.
Lumen could offer the high quality bespoke made rooflights the clients were looking for – something that would compliment the very high standard of finish they were trying to achieve with the rest of the build. Lumen were also able to supply the rooflights at a significantly better value than the other quotes. Also, the rooflights were approved without any concerns from the Conservation Officer, who appeared to be impressed with their low profile and conservation style design.
The rooflights are now a real focal point in the new extension, flooding the room with light and creating a sense of space and openness.
