Skylight & Roof System
A custom skylight is introduced to a traditional family room to create a singular space for relaxation and growth.
- This family room was designed to provide the clients with an abundance of natural light.
- We used a custom designed double-hip skylight framed in beautiful mahogany.
- Insulated low-e argon-filled glass was used to achieve optimal efficiency.
The clients came to Sunspace with a family room addition project to their Cape Cod-style home in Newbury, Massachusetts. The main goal was bringing great light to the space. The room featured large windows, and it was important to maintain a traditional appearance which blended with the existing style.
Because the existing sitting room featured a brick fireplace and large screen television area, a number of design decisions—including glass type—were quite important. We needed to satisfy the need for improved natural light levels without compromising the comfort provided by the room on a year-round basis. We settled on an insulated, argon gas-filled glass with a soft coat low-e treatment. The inboard glass unit was laminated both for safety and to control UV rays.
The resulting space was truly magnificent: well-lit during the day (to the benefit of a number of thriving plants) and comfortable on a year-round basis. We also provided plenty of natural ventilation as well as an efficient heating and air conditioning system. The clients were truly left with a room for all seasons.
