Maximising Space and Daylight in Mayfair

Two different types of rooflight from Glazing Vision have been deployed in a rebuilt mews house

In association with

Buildings.

Glazing Vision rooflights were used in the reconstruction of this mews house situated in the prime real estate and conservation area of Mayfair, London. The building is an exceptional example of stunning architecture and elegant, contemporary interiors.

Keeping the interiors bright and airy throughout was key to the design concept – floor to ceiling windows and Flushglaze walk-on rooflights from Glazing Vision were installed to maximise the daylight where it would have been otherwise compromised on the ground and second floors. In addition, a Glazing Vision three-wall box rooflight provides unimpeded access from an internal staircase to the impressive roof terrace.

Flushglaze walk-on rooflights maximise daylight within the building

The walk-on rooflights averted the risk of dimly-lit corners in the dining zone and living area on the ground floor, whilst two further custom-sized Flushglaze walk-on rooflights installed on the roof terrace add an intricate design detail and create a wow factor. To optimise the very large roof space, Glazing Vision’s three-wall box rooflight offers easy access all year round to the roof terrace, and creates a contemporary glass feature.

At the touch of a button from an access keypad, the sliding roof retracts to give a 50 per cent clear opening with no bowing of the head necessary. The operation is quiet and safe, and the provision of a rain sensor ensures that the roof closes in inclement weather.
