Potential of Rooflights Highlighted in Award-Winning Project

An award-winning project by Apropos, has highlighted the benefits that rooflights can bring to a property.

The Somerset orangery was a finalist in the 2010 LABC Building Excellence Awards, and incorporated two magnificent rooflights into its design. The project quite clearly shows how Apropos’ rooflights – also known as skylights - can create amazing light, even in period properties, a growing market in which Apropos has an enviable record.

The owners of the property wanted the orangery to match the heritage of the original building, whilst providing a welcoming living space for their family and grandchildren. The grand rooflights help create a perfect blend between modern design and classic architecture, whilst allowing the light to freely flood into the living space below.

The orangery includes two distinct new living areas to the rear of the property, with the rooflights the design centrepieces in each room. The aluminium rooflights sit proudly in the centre of each room, with one of the rooflights creating a naturally fresh and vibrant spotlight for the owners’ dining table, and fantastic dining experiences for family and friends.

Despite their classic looks, the rooflights are as up-to-date as is possible, incorporating electronic roof vents for warm weather and the highest energy and thermal efficiency ratings possible in times of poor weather. The rooflights help provide a warm and cosy living area, with the occupants knowing that the rooflights will retain heat in the orangery whatever the weather, whilst also keeping them cool when the Somerset sun shines brightly.

The rooflights are complemented by a five-panel, folding sliding door system; which can be opened up fully on warm, sunny days to create an amazing living experience that blends the indoors with the outdoors.

The rooflights are affordable design classics for a family home, which maximise the aesthetic experience for the owner, whilst providing unsurpassed and solid engineering that will last a lifetime. With such attributes it is no wonder the rooflights helped the orangery reach the final of the Building Excellence Awards - a ringing endorsement of the fine quality of work undertaken by Apropos.
