Listed Winchester Town House Case Study
Natralight collaborated with award-winning architectural and interior design firm Chaplin Farrant Wiltshire to transform a conservatory extension in Winchester with the installation of flat fixed rooflights.
The fixed flat type of skylight was the best choice for this project with the aim to allow more natural light into the conservatory below.
Its two-part framing system is manufactured to suit builders with a prepared raised upstand with a minimum built fall of 3 degrees.
Using a minimalistic thermally broken framework, this type of rooflight maximises natural daylighting and the property's thermal value.
Winchester Town House Project Explained
The townhouse is a multi-phase building of considerable architectural complexity which date from the 12th century right through until the 20th century.
The oldest surviving structure present within the curtilage is the two-bay undercroft of the 12th Century date which forms part of the basement known by the present owners as the 'Mint'. This undercroft, in particular, is one of the outstanding features of architectural importance.
One of the biggest challenges of this project was gaining planning permission for a listed building's garden room within the curtilage of the 'Mint' because of its historical importance. The complete work on this refurbishment includes the remodelling of the pool, pool house, redesigning of hard and soft landscaping plus entrance gates. The main house has been carefully refurbished externally with the courtyard orangery also re-glazed.
