Lumen rooflights maximise the light entering the refurbished living space of this Grade II listed property on the Cornish coast.
Nestled in the beautifully picturesque Church Cove on Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula, The Cellars is a unique property located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and just metres from the sea with amazing coastal views.
The Grade II listed property dates back to the 18th century and was originally used as pilchard cellars, storing the daily catch which would have been winched up from Church Cove below. Today the stunning property has been lovingly restored and converted into a truly unique luxury holiday cottage.
One of the most important considerations for the build was the rooflights. These would not only provide the finishing touches to the external of the building, but also maximise the light entering the new living space.
Rooflights with the same meticulous rigour that was applied to rest of the build were required, and after consultation with Lumen and following a visit to their factory in Devon, three Lumen LR6 rooflights from Lumen’s Conservation range were selected.
Lumen rooflights in grade 316 stainless steel were chosen. Type 316 is an austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steel containing molybdenum. This addition increases general corrosion resistance, improves resistance to pitting from chloride ion solutions, and provides increased strength at elevated temperatures.
In addition to the protective nature of the steel, Lumen also applied a coastal paint application offering greater longevity in the harsh salty environment of a costal location.
The high quality materials used in every aspect of every Lumen rooflight perfectly matched the Cameron’s aspirations for the project. From the high specification Pilkington Activ self-clean solar control glazing, through to the handmade American ash interior liners and solid brass winding mechanisms, Lumen rooflights guarantee consistent high quality and long life.
