A modern extension has transformed this traditional property into a free flowing, open planned family home.
A modern extension has transformed this traditional property into a free flowing, open planned family home. Filled with an abundance of natural daylight throughout the whole property, thanks to three Glazing Vision rooflights.
Approached by Channel 4 to work on this clients’ 1930’s semi detached house, set on the edge of Sheffield, CE+CA Studio were tasked with radically altering this traditional property and make space for their growing family.
Whenever there is a plan to create more space in a renovation, it is vital that the increased depth of the rooms never feel dark and that they promote plenty of natural daylight.
Howard Evans, Director of CE+CA Studio, was keen to include a number of rooflights and roof windows within the project, and having worked with Glazing Vision on multiple projects over nearly 20 years, he was quick to communicate with his local Technical Specification Manager, Michael Rogers, and specify two fixed Flushglaze rooflights and a Pitchglaze roof window.
The effect of the 2000mm x 1000mm stock sized Pitchglaze roof window, is an abundance of natural daylight flowing through the centre of the house.
The frameless internal appearance allows sky only views, unique to this type of product, and important to ensuring that maximum light was transferred into to this family home.
Even in the early evening, when the sun cast shadows through the unique balustrading at the top of the house, it adds a dynamic and ever changing effect to the stairwell walls.
The 2000mm x 1000mm and 1200mm x 900mm flat Flushglaze roof lights over the new extension and kitchen/diner area have accentuated the open new space and ensure the new areas in the home do not feel dark.
It has been an impressive remodelling of a traditional 1930’s property into a modern and vibrant home – reflective of the change within the city over recent decades. Emphasising the benefit of natural daylight and open plan living, this remodelled property has attracted plenty of interest appearing on ‘Ugly House to Lovely House’ on Channel 4.
