Electric hinged integrated rooflight for retail and food centre

Adnams Cellar & Kitchen Store, Suffolk

Flat fixed rooflight with no visible internal framework

Overview/Brief

Adnams Cellar and Kitchen Store is an ambitious new build project in the centre of Southwold offering a host of food and kitchenware items. The design focuses on an environmental approach using natural daylight and ventilation, sheep’s wool insulation and a rainwater recycling system.

Solution

Glazing Vision supplied a number of GV Flushglaze and GV Integrated electrically hinged VisionVent rooflights to the project.

The row of GV Flushglaze rooflights was interspersed with 4 electrically hinged GV VisionVents to allow for natural daylight to flood into the new store and cafe and the option to remotely open the hinged VisionVent for natural ventilation.

Both products work harmoniously together to create a complimentary aesthetic and functional product. The rooflights also featured aluminium back to back angles at the joins to allow for a large area to be installed with the products maintaining the maximum daylight, minimum framework philosophy of Glazing Vision.
