Fixed rooflights inspires new space in family home
Three Glazing Vision rooflights were key to unlocking the potential of this north-east facing extension. Flooding this new modern extension with natural daylight, these fixed rooflights have not only helped to transform the property into a light, airy, space but has also inspired a new central hub for this family to enjoy.
Keen to update their disjointed layout, the owners of this Victorian property looked to re-energise their whole property with a new modernised extension which would help to brighten their previously dark home. Key to this project, was a new feature room which would help bring the family together and allow them to enjoy spending time at home again.
The homeowners sought out Oasys Property Solutions, who created a new concept which would allow a generous sized kitchen/dining/living space, filled with an abundance of natural daylight; perfect for the family environment that was sought after and would also help to promote both wellbeing and concentration levels, in an age when working from home is becoming more common.
However, with a north-east facing extension, Simon Heckford, Director at Oasys Property Solutions, knew it was important to add rooflights into the extension to maximise the natural light within the new area. Having used Glazing Vision on multiple occasions, Simon was confident that their technical knowledge would help him to source the rooflights required. Similarly, the economical benefits this would provide the homeowners was a sure-fire winner; helping to reduce the need for artificial light and helping to reduce their carbon footprint.
Glazing Vision were able to specify two flat Flushgaze rooflights, and a wall abutted bespoke rooflight. This allowed the homeowners to benefit from natural daylight throughout the entirety of the extension and helped to flow through the rest of the property.
“There is no question that the quality, and consistency, of natural light from the rooflights, even in the bleakest weather, contributes to the light and airy feel of the new extension.”
Simon Heckford, Director at Oasys Property Solutions.
The finished result is a modernised extension which really adds a ‘wow factor’ to the property and offers a new space for the whole family to enjoy, whether it’s entertaining guests or spending family time together. The updated space has also generated a newfound connection with the garden space, and with stunning features throughout, has become a real centrepiece of the home.

Rooflights add ‘wow factor’ to Tudor style property
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”.
