Installing both Glazing Vision rooflights and roof windows into this newly built extension, has helped to bring a new lease of life into their family home.
Keen to take advantage of the benefits that natural daylight could offer their previously dark and outdated property, the homeowners sought the expertise of Glazing Vision. Installing both rooflights and roof windows into their newly built extension, helping to bring a new lease of life into their family home.
Looking to extend their existing home, the homeowners were desperate to create a modern open plan living arrangement, which encompassed an abundance of natural daylight sweeping through the whole building.
Having approached G3 Architecture, the proposed design was a two-story side and rear extension, which removed the rear wall of the existing house, creating a larger kitchen, dining and living room arrangement. The first-floor extension would form a larger bedroom and create a modern family bathroom.
Tasked with completing this extension project were Greve & Son Ltd, and having used Glazing Vision rooflights on numerous occasions before, were quick to source three stock sized Pitchglaze roof windows and a stock sized Flushglaze fixed rooflight which would be the focal point of the new extension build and provide the necessary natural daylight.
It was important that the new extension aesthetics kept within the design of the building structure already there. Face brick work and slate roof were critical to the design of the home, and with the Pitchglaze roof windows being in-plane, there were no bulky additions to the exterior of the client’s extension, helping keep within the initial design plan.
On the ground floor, the newly extended kitchen benefits from a landscape Pitchglaze unit and a flat fixed rooflight. Thanks to their frameless internals, sunlight flows through the property – letting in twice the amount of daylight compared to traditional vertical windows. Providing the homeowners with the bright and radiant living space they were looking for.
Jonny Greve, Owner of Greve & Son Ltd, mentions that “the only difficulty was the requirement for a crane to lift the Pitchglazes on to the first floor, as these are quite heavy. However, having used these products before and especially on this job, he wouldn’t go anywhere else for rooflights and roof windows.” Adding later that “the customer was amazed and loved the Pitchglaze roof window.”
