It takes the right blend of old and new to elegantly renovate an historic, feature filled building, using modern materials. For Merseyside’s toughened glass specialist TuffX, the biggest challenge on a recent project was enabling their contemporary walk on glass floor to complement the majesty of a stained glass window centrepiece.
The result of such an unusual combination is a beautiful pillar of light streaming vertically throughout Chapel Cottage; an ex Methodist chapel in Brockdish, Norfolk. The chapel has been newly converted into a home, and as part of the development, included the installation of TuffX’s 33mm laminated roof light.
The panels – which are manufactured to bespoke dimensions at no extra cost to the customer – allow for an increased flow of natural light and are supplied as a finished unit, ready to install and secure. The eco friendly U-Value of 1.2 means that even when it looks cold outside, homes stay warmer for longer with minimal heat loss.
