This traditional, stylish three-storey property in Knightsbridge is just a stone’s throw away from Harrods and was subject to a major refurbishment, which included the development of a spectacular roof terrace.
Part of our design brief was to provide a rooflight that, when open, would provide a completely clear opening above the staircase below that was not visually obstructed by framework.
A bespoke electric sliding rooflight
Our design team proposed an electronically-operated sliding rooflight that would close into the recess in the wall and would retract into a pocket covered with a planted area when opened; making the most of the roof terrace’s valuable outside space.
The rooflight operates silently at the touch of a button at the foot of the stairs and can either open fully for access or partially for plentiful ventilation. The maximum amount of natural light floods into the top floor of the property all year round, providing the ultimate feature of this stunning living space.
We became involved in this project at the later stages of the build program as the builder and designer had been let down by another company.
Mark Lambert, sales director, Sunsquare, said: “We joined this particular project at the latter stages, but we still managed to conduct the survey, provide working drawings and install the rooflight within budget and on schedule.
“As staircases in terrace properties are typically against the party wall, this particular sliding rooflight design is becoming really popular in major urban cities.” We’ve been leading the UK flat roof skylight market for more than a decade.
