Set at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in Westbury on Trym, Bristol, this 1920s Tudor style property has been transformed to include two sleek extensions. Utilising two bespoke fixed rooflights, the property now benefits from an abundance of natural daylight, with incredible aspects.
Situated below a golf course, there are attractive views from the rear of the house. However, the ground floor was a jumbled layout with lots of small rooms that lacked any flow or access to the large rear garden. The homeowners wanted to maximise the potential of their location and sought the help of DHV Architects to help them realise their ambitions.
After initial discussions with DHV Architects, detailed plans were put in place with the intent of re-energising this aging and outdated property. Two stylish extensions were proposed with plenty of contemporary glazing, helping to update the property fit for the 21st century.
The larger extension comprises a generous kitchen and dining room with balcony on top, providing the desired sleek and contemporary look to the downstairs spaces, whilst also opening up the rooms and breathing new life into the downstairs arrangement. The addition of rooflights created a link between inside and outside, resulting in a much needed connection to the outdoors.
Having specified rooflights previously from Glazing Vision, DHV Architects were quick to source advice from their technical specification team. The balcony features a Glazing Vision fixed walk on rooflight, and the kitchen area benefits from an Eaves roof light.
The Glazing Vision ‘eaves’ Flushglaze rooflight comprises of two or more glazed sections installed in both vertical and horizontal planes, joined together with a structural silicone seal. Internally, the eaves Flushglaze unit provides the same frameless views, resulting in a seamless transition between inside and outside.
“We love the look of both rooflights and think that they create the wow factor with their stylish looks” explains Elke Dittrich, Director at DHV Architects. “They help to fill the living space with natural light, even on gloomy days”.
