Properties on the “rungs”of the Harringay Ladder have much sought-after heritage features: impressive front doors, spacious rooms with high ceilings, and sizeable back gardens. However, without wishing to lose the period charm of the house, the owners at Allison Road were seeking to modernise the interior to suit their young family, as well as to increase the footprint. The rear reception room presented an opportunity to extend and to create a generously sized, modern kitchen and snug where the family could eat, relax and entertain.
But the connection to the neighbour’s wall brought a challenge with it – there was no possibility to incorporate a side window in the designated kitchen area of the extension. To overcome this, Brown looked for a way of bringing the light in from the roof, without adding any unsightly exterior furniture, which might negatively impact on the appearance of the extension.
Additionally, the architect was satisfied that Glazing Vision’s Flushglaze fixed skylight provided excellent thermal performance, with its combination of low emissivity glass, argon-filled cavities and warm edge spacer bars. The risk of condensation forming on the internal frame, which is caused by “cold bridging”, is also kept to an absolute minimum. The framework is sealed by a gasket, which means there is no need for a thermal break, thus keeping the profile as reduced as possible.
