Roofglaze has installed more than 3,280m
2 of glass monopitch skylights at Wolverton Park, a redevelopment of the former railway works at Milton Keynes
Designed and installed by Roofglaze, the skylights bring natural light into the three grade II-listed buildings, which now comprise 76 apartments and town houses as well as a cafe and a restaurant. The continuous runs of glass skylights provide a practical solution that meets Building Regulations and complements the aesthetics of the 200-year-old buildings.
Many of the skylights needed to be “blacked out” to give the appearance of continuous skylights from outside, to meet the requirements of the listing, without transmitting any light to certain parts of the interiors. Black ceramic glass is used in these areas, which the firm says makes it impossible to see the difference between the clear and blacked-out sections from the outside.
