Two bespoke designed Lumen Conservation rooflights were chosen for a new kitchen extension in this beautifully appointed Victorian terrace in North London.
With space at a premium it was possible to double the size of the kitchen by making the most of a small side garden with a single story extension incorporating a cleverly designed side return roof. Every last detail of the build, from the high-end kitchen appliances to the light bulbs were researched with rigour to ensure the end finish was to a standard that matched the rest of this beautiful family home.
Two bespoke designed Lumen Conservation rooflights were installed – a product often specified in Listed properties, barn conversions or properties situated in a Conservation Area. With their low profile and traditional external appearance, the rooflights blend in naturally with the Victorian properties in the street, while providing a modern look and feel on the inside to mirror the stylish appearance of the home.
The slender frame of the Conservation rooflights allow the maximum amount of light to enter the new space and despite the close proximity of neighbouring properties, light floods into the new room from above. This was hugely important as the new area forms the hub of this family home - a place not only to cook, but a communal, functional space for the family to come together to dine and the children to play.
The Lumen Conservation rooflights were supplied to the exact specification and size (1600mm x 1000mm), with a black powder coat finish, American ash interior liners, self-cleaning highly efficient double glazing units and Lumen’s bespoke lead flashing kit.
