  • Project Details:

    A number of Glazing Vision products have been specified on a variety of home renovations in Hackney by, ARCHEA, Victorian house experts specialising in adapting period houses into modern homes. These homes regularly demand an uplift in natural daylight, and Glazing Vision rooflights and roof windows have helped transform these their properties into well-lit, healthy, and happy environments for a number of families.

    These Hackney homes are all located within 10 minutes of each other, with all clients looking to transform their period property into a contemporary home. Each project involved an extension and was in need of a significant increase in natural daylight to help better the health and wellbeing of the families residing in each dwelling.

    Richard Skinner of ARCHEA commented; “When adding a ground floor extension, we often need to include rooflights to add light and views both to the new spaces and existing rooms in the home. Whilst fully glazed roofs can be used, this approach typically incurs more cost and extended lead-times due to the glazing being bespoke and needing to be made to order. By using large format, off-the-shelf rooflights we can incorporate extensive areas of glazing, but at a much lower cost and faster turnaround. We then use these in combination with traditional roof construction techniques, which are simple to construct and maintain.”.

    ARCHEA regularly specifies rooflights.com’s BBA approved Flushglaze Fixed Rooflight, a minimalist product with ‘frameless’ internal views which allow as much natural daylight into a home as possible. 

    When working with pitched roofs, ARCHEA often opt for the rooflights.com Glazing Vision Pitchglaze Fixed Roof Window which is expertly designed for pitched tiled roof applications between 15 and 60 degrees.

    “We initially chose rooflights.com because of their wide range of high-quality rooflights, and we value the help of their team who are always on hand for technical support. We typically use the Flushglaze Fixed units as the extensions we work with usually involve a flat roof for practical and planning reasons and the Flushglaze offers the largest and best value standard glazing solution on the market. The standard aspect is vital for us as we are often looking for short lead times, and so this element adds so much value. When working with pitched roofs we instead use the Pitchglaze Fixed Roof Window which fit flush within the roof offering a sleek finish.” – Richard Skinner, ARCHEA.

    Rooflights.com allows you to purchase off-the-shelf rooflights and roof windows, delivered straight to your door.
