Glazing Vision's Swains Lane Project

Glazing Vision's Swains Lane Project
17/02/2013

Overview/Brief The site on Swains Lane is situated on the very edge of a historic Victorian cemetery. Originally occupied by an existing steel-framed house designed by the modernist John Winter, alongside a small cluster of other contemporary residences, the existing building was replaced with a modern 4 storey solution.

The design featured a concrete frame and walls complemented by the frameless structural glass allowing for unparalleled views of the cemetery. The top floor kitchen features a Glazing Vision Ltd opening rooflight to ensure maximum daylight and ventilation whilst adding to the minimalist nature of the building design.

Solution Glazing Vision Ltd supplied a bespoke sliding over roof glass rooflight (designed in-house) allowing the kitchen to be bathed in sunlight and air at the touch of a button. Complementing well the gadget inspired nature of the house.

The unique dimensions of the rooflight denoted that glass sections were to be used and to ensure the Client’s “all-glass” look was maintained, glass fins were installed at the joins.

Rooflight Specifications Glass – 6mm Suncool HP Silver 50/30 toughened outer 16mm Air Filled Cavity 6mm Low E toughened inner 3 No toughened laminated glass fins

Paint finish – Polyester Powder Coated to RAL 7015 Slate Grey
