Frameless fixed rooflights transform new build property

Private Residence, Seaford

Situated in the coastal town of Seaford, within East Sussex, this family home was transformed with the help of three fixed frameless rooflights. The natural light generated from the roof lights, which has flooded through this newly built extension, has accentuated the open plan living arrangement creating a new lease of life to this property.

A FAMILY INSPIRED EXTENSION

A growing family brings about a lot of changes, and one of those is a requirement for more space within the family home. That is exactly the challenge that faced these homeowners, who were keen to maximise the potential of their property.

They planned a single-storey rear extension, which would create a larger open plan kitchen and dining room arrangement and increase the overall square footage within the property. Further to that, was a request to create a dual aspect extension, which would encompass an inviting space to enjoy the garden views.

BRINGING THE OUTSIDE IN

Tasked with embracing this challenge of bringing outside in was G3 Architecture and Greve & Son Ltd. Looking to create a contemporary style which would emphasise the outdoor feel, bespoke oak timber frames and large sections of glazing were specified. Importantly and key to the design was the specification of three fixed rooflights from online rooflights specialist rooflights.com.

Having installed the products on multiple occasions, Jonny Greve, Owner of Greve & Son Ltd, sought out the expertise of rooflights.com. “The technical advice that I receive is really helpful and helps to ensure the right product is always specified”.

Supplied with an easy clean coating, designed to keep the glass cleaner for longer. These three rooflights measuring 2000mm x 1000mm each, were fundamental to capturing natural daylight from above and embracing the outdoor view that the family were hoping for in their new living space. Not only were the rooflights able to provide a complete frameless finish – which helped to match the vertical glazing panels sourced in the extension, but the low e coating on the rooflights, helped to provide a superior thermal performance and ensure that heat loss is kept to a minimum.

The project has been well received by the occupiers, and they were delighted with the large amount of glazing in the extension. In particular, the skylights help to promote the sense of outdoor living, allowing in plenty of sunlight from above.
