Glazing Vision’s one wall box rooflights were incorporated in a residential development at St Dunstan’s House, Fetter Lane in the City of London.
The scheme provides 76 luxury private apartments, a residents’ lounge and library, landscaped courtyard in a historic setting, complete with basement parking and concierge facilities.
Key to unlocking this vital roof top space, whilst simultaneously respecting the roofline in this conservation area, were Glazing Vision’s innovative box rooflights. Essentially a free-standing “glass box” these roof lights provided both technical as well as aesthetic benefits for the architects. In addition to four standard freestanding box rooflights, Glazing Vision were able to precision-engineer two bespoke sized one-wall box rooflights to meet the unique requirements of the re-worked layout.
The minimal structural framework, powder-coated in grey to harmonise with the elegant interior décor, and the glass-to-glass joints of the box rooflights reflected the clean, contemporary aesthetics at the heart of this residential development whilst successfully providing the desired seamless integration of the exterior and interior.
The large glazed sections of the box rooflights ensured that these luxurious triplexes are flooded with natural light during the day and crowned with the stars at night. The small stairwell up to the box rooflight, and the wide opening created by the retractable section make access to the terrace very easy for the resident, who will undoubtedly delight in the use of this highly valuable and generously sized outdoor space, whilst enjoying unadulterated views over the famous landmarks in this historic conservation area.
