Rooflights create seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors

Rooflights create seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors

The use of two large bespoke rooflights from Glazing Vision seamlessly integrate this family home, providing the focal point for beautiful views and a stunning contemporary kitchen.

The clients’ initial discussions with Simon Foote Architects were insightful, and a clear plan of action was achieved. Opening up the rear of the property to create a visual and physical link to the outdoor space, embracing the views to the east and the west of the property as well as using the sun path through the rear garden to guide how the space should be arranged.

The fixed Eaves Flushglaze roof light, measuring 4136mm (span) x 1347mm (width) x 2750mm (height), created a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors, thanks to the flush frameless design of the product.

The Glazing Vision Sliding Over Fixed roof light combines a sliding pane of glass that retracts over a fixed one. This combination not only helped to fill the kitchen with natural daylight, but also improved the natural ventilation due to the retractable element of the product.

Despite being the first time working with Simon Foote Architects, Jenny Hunter mentioned that the team found “the Glazing Vision team were particularly knowledgeable” helping to keep the whole process simple.

“We have extremely happy clients and that’s what it’s all about. We are pleased with the finished results as we have achieved a design that allows the clients to move through the space and experience the different views individually. This ensures that there is a layer of reveal to the design depending on where you are within the space.” Jenny Hunter, Simon Foote Architects.
