Contemporary extension: Sheffield

January 26, 2016

 

Planning for enough natural light is important for the functionality of a home and Roof Maker skylights help the clients of this extension in Sheffield create a bright and enjoyable space.

Abundant natural light in a home not only saves electrical energy but also creates a positive effect on the mood of you and your family, brightening your day and bringing a welcoming feel to your living area

At this stunning extension in Sheffield, award winning Whitshaw Builders, chose two Slimline® roof lanterns and a fixed flat rooflight to help create a contemporary and minimal design.

The extension is in keeping with the character of the existing dwelling and respectful of the surrounding vernacular. The proposal is traditional in its form however the use of a flat roof and roof lanterns create a really contemporary feel.

Bringing the outside, inside

The client wanted to create a more habitable space that all the family could share together which had a strong connection to the garden. The main feature of this design and build is the use of the glass roof lanterns.

The full height glazing and roof lanterns also help create better interaction with the garden to encourage inside and outside living.

We love incorporating rooflights into the designs of our projects, they are a great way of letting light in and allow us to create a really modern look.

We have used continued to use Roof-Maker skylights since the initial project at Kensington Chase in Sheffield, not only are their products great but also because they offer value for money and the service we receive from the team is second to none.
