Huntercombe Manor Barn

Natralight were commissioned to work on this grade 2 listed building based in Nuffield, near Henley-on-Thames, installing an aluminium based fixed modular rooflight.

The aim was to provide additional natural lighting to this converted barn area, designing the rooflight on the current roof structure.

This project also featured on BBC’s Escape to the Country Series 7, with a couple looking at the barn conversion and the rest of the property for potential purchase.

Located in Nuffield, Huntercombe Manor Barn comprises of a very large brick and flint building of around 4000 square feet, with the building also featuring a vaulted interior revealing an impressive timber-beamed construction.

Our range of flat fixed rooflights comprises of a thermally broken framework, which enhances the properties thermal value.

Using a sleek aluminium frame gives the rooflights a slim profile which ensures the maximum amount of light flooding the property.

Natralight teamed up with architects MEB Design Ltd, who have worked on construction projects all over the United Kingdom plus countries such as Kenya, Tanzania, Jersey and Mozambique.

Huntercombe Manor homeowner Jonathan Bisson commented,

"We desperately needed to introduce daylight into the typically very dark barn interior. We managed to get permission to take a 16 metres long section of the ridge off and replace with 22m2 of structural glass. After I had spent about 3 weeks upon the scaffold preparing the opening, the glazing was fitted to plan in a few days by Natralight. This has made the most unbelievable difference to the interior."

The Huntercombe Manor Barn has now become a photo shoot and filming location available for hire.
