Rooflights bring ventilation and access to coastal cottage

Instrumental in ensuring there was adequate ventilation as well as natural daylight in this luxury property in Lulworth Cove, were four deluxe rooflights from Glazing Vision.

To ensure that there was daylight available in all bedrooms on the second floor, a combination of Glazing Vision rooflights were installed, each measuring 1270mm x 1270mm. In 2 of the bedrooms there was an electrically hinged VisionVent solo (vent only) rooflight, whilst in the third bedroom there was an electrically hinged SkyHatch roof access rooflight.

The 2 Glazing Vision VisionVent Solo (vent only) rooflights were specified primarily as a way of providing ventilation in the bedrooms. This rooflight was supplied with the electrical hinge mechanism and remote control. The electronically hinged VisionVent solo (vent only) rooflight uses twindrive sychronised mechanics with encoder feedback to open automatically at the touch of a button – an intelligent wall switch is supplied as standard.

The single SkyHatch Roof Access rooflight was specified to fulfill 2 criteria: to provide a valuable source of daylight to the third bedroom, but, more importantly, it provided a clever, cost effective way of accessing the roof space. The SkyHatch Electric opens out to a maximum of 85 degrees providing a safe and reliable means of accessing the roof but can also be partially opened to serve as a ventilation unit too.

Without doubt it is the super-sized Glazing Vision Fixed Flushglaze rooflight, positioned immediately above the central staircase up on the second floor that really adds drama to the interior of the house. Commissioned by RB Studio to a bespoke size of 3400mm x 4200mm, it was supplied by Glazing Vision as a 3-part unit but still with the standard, minimalist framework, for which this product has become much sought-after by architects and developers alike.

The sleek interior framework of this fixed Flushglaze rooflight maximizes the feeling of loft and airiness on this upper floor, and the slate grey internal finish (RAL 7015) seamlessly coordinates with the moody grey tones of the stairwell and landings.
