Flushglaze rooflights and Pitchglaze roof windows have helped create a contemporary property with a light, open-plan feel and spectacular views across the Derbyshire Dales
The designers of this new-build property near Matlock in the Derbyshire Dales installed three Glazing Vision rooflights to create an open-plan feel and lots of natural daylight.
Architects and town planners Planning & Design Practice were asked by their clients to create a bespoke dwelling with a contemporary feel. The project was limited by covenants imposed on the development site, which meant that no windows could be side-facing towards the south west. The use of fixed flat rooflights allowed natural daylight into the sides of the building without overlooking the neighbours and made possible a deeper floorplan with a bright and light-filled central core.
A Glazing Vision flat glass Flushglaze rooflight measuring 980x2680mm was specified over the entrance hall. This provided clean lines and minimised any visual impact when viewed from outside the front elevation.
The frameless internal views create the perfect effect, allowing natural daylight to shine through into the entrance hall, opening up the whole home. However, as the development grew, the homeowners were keen to add fixed pitched roof windows on the two-storey part of the house.
Contractors JPD Properties worked with Glazing Vision to come up with a solution for the pitched glazing and now the clients love the space created and the light that enters their new home.
