Redston Road

mulroy architects Ltd as Architects

Situated in a prestigious London location, this Edwardian terraced house incorporates Glazing Vision’s Flushglaze fixed rooflight.


A simple but effective design solution, the large skylight floods this London extension with natural light and helps to expand interior space. The skylight comprises a single pane of toughened, triple-laminated glass above the dining area.


In addition to allowing light to penetrate the heart of the extension, the rooflight provides views of the sky as well as a feature at night. Together with sliding glass doors, connections to the garden are maximized.


More from the Manufacturer:


Reston Road is an extension project by Andrew Mulroy Architects (http://www.mulroy.info) that has created a large new open plan kitchen and dining area at the rear of an Edwardian terraced house backing onto Alexandra Palace Park. The owners had always loved the location of their house and wanted to stay there, but were frustrated that its small spaces were proving increasingly unsuitable for their lifestyle and their desire to create a long term home for their young family.


The existing ground floor was divided into three small rooms containing a breakfast room, living room and kitchen. Redividing this space allowed for a greater sense of space throughout the ground floor and also helped increase the level of natural light. Relocating the kitchen opened up clear views of the garden from the entrance hall, and prevented it acting as a visual block within the open plan house.


To bring natural light into an otherwise dimly lit area at the centre of the extended space, a large roof light was installed. This also opened up views through the tree canopy above, while full height thermally broken high performance sliding doors with concealed runners were installed facing the garden, again to bring more light into the house and create a lively relationship between inside and outside.


By making simple but effective alterations, the redevelopment created a family house which can be enjoyed for many years to come.


Flushglaze Fixed Rooflight

Glazing Vision Europe as Manufacturers

Situated in a prestigious London location, this Edwardian terraced house incorporates Glazing Vision’s Flushglaze fixed roof light for the requirement of natural lighting.


Expanding interior space to enhance the property’s location


Although the property’s location was desirable, with nearby transport links and a ten minute walk to impressive parkland, the interior space fell short of expectations. The clients were looking for ways to expand usable living space, which would not only enable the family to spend more quality time together but would also enhance the views of the scenic landscape beyond the garden.


To meet these objectives, Andrew Mulroy Architects Ltd focused on designing a large kitchen extension to the rear of the property that would help to accentuate this landscape and create an open, interior space for the family. This would create a focal point for the home where both children and adults can congregate and socialise.


Integration of fixed roof lights for natural lighting


The ground floor plan, which was originally segregated into three rooms, a small breakfast room, a smaller kitchen and a tight living room, were replaced with a large kitchen diner that extends outwards into the garden.


In order to create an extension that provided sufficient lighting as well as space, a large skylight was incorporated into the design plan.


Glazing Vision supplied their fixed Flushglaze rooflight for the requirement of natural lighting; this large, single pane of toughened, triple-laminated glass was installed above the dining area.


The installation of Glazing Vision’s product enabled daylight to penetrate the heart of the extension that would have otherwise been relatively dark; the rooflight not only enables great views of the sky during the day but is also an admirable feature at night, with an open snug room positioned to the side of the skylight around a wood burning stove.


Glazing Vision’s product, together with the full width sliding glass doors onto the garden, help to maximize the amount of natural daylight that now floods the new living space.


The flawless finish of the Flushglaze skylight, with its minimal framework and large area of sheer glass, complement the white-washed décor of the extension perfectly; the combination of minimal colour and seamless glass has created a floor-to-ceiling mergence of garden and sky.


Achievements from the project


Andrew Mulroy Architects carefully considered the owner’s requirements for light and space throughout the project and have created an extension that has created a special family environment for all occupants.


What is particularly impressive about this project is how the original period character has been carefully integrated with a more contemporary style of living; the building’s traditional charm blends with the minimalist features of the kitchen extension. This North London property carries with it an air of understated elegance.
