Glass Roofs and Architectural Features

When walking into a space, the way it is lit has a big influence over our first impressions and how we feel about it. Glass roofs are an architectural feature which open a room, bathing it in natural light and giving the impression of a much bigger space. Natralight has a vast portfolio of high technology glass products from roof lights to structural glazing enabling architects and designers to realise exciting plans and create that all important wow factor for their clients.   

The Benefits of Glass Roofs and Roof Lights in Architecture

Contemporary glazing can transform an existing building. A new extension, or the addition of a glass roof as a modification can improve what would otherwise be a claustrophobic space reliant upon artificial lights into an airy, expansive zone which is both practical and uplifting.

Many examples of Natralight’s glass roofs, roof lights and structural glazing projects have been successfully completed by our design, manufacture and installation team. In the crowded capital, London property owners are making the most of roof spaces by having a range of solutions to access their roof top outdoor space. From a bespoke cranked rooflight with automatic sliding door for access to a roof terrace in Westminster, to a flat glazed access roof light, or an electrically operated fully structural traditional sliding lantern roof light with stunning views of The Shard. We have completed many complex briefs, and each presents its own set of challenges. Moving away from the city we designed and built a mono pitched frameless glass rooflight installed on a property in Chipping Campden. The expansive glass displays the warm beauty of the Cotswold stone building which is emblematic of the region. This project combined high technology glazing and engineering with classic Cotswold architecture.
