A new client in Suffolk was undergoing a complete house renovation, and needed a solution to replace an existing 90s UPVC atrium. The existing brown UPVC atrium at the rear of the kitchen gave the kitchen some natural light, but blocked the views from the master bedroom and made the roof terrace small and unusable.
The 1930s property, which had been last renovated in the 1990s was being given a complete makeover with a new modern kitchen, and needed a new skylight to replace the atrium to match the new style of the house. The skylight had to fit into the existing atrium with a bespoke size of 2.5 m x 1.5 m. The client opted for a multi-pane SkyView, which optimised the light into the kitchen, and with a height including the up stands of around 40cm, meant the views from the master bedroom were now of the Newmarket heath rather than the old atrium which stood around 1.5 metres high.
The client was thrilled with the sleek design of the multi-pane SkyView, which now directed light onto a new seating area at the end of the modern kitchen, the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast or for their kids to sit and do their homework with a view of the night-sky above.
“The overall effect is amazing, the amount of light the enters the room from the SkyView skylight compared to the old atrium is unbelievable, it’s transformed the space. The roof terrace is now also a usable space and we’re planning to add a sedum roof around the skylight to give us a unique garden roof terrace.”
Due to the bespoke nature of the Sunsquare products, the skylights can not only be specified into new projects but make the perfect retro fit for older buildings that need modernising.
