We believe skylights are the perfect combination of function and aesthetics – they bring an abundance of natural light into your home, which is ideal for areas that feel closed off and dimly lit, but can also offer an unparalleled beauty that is impossible to replicate!
Traditionally they were used as features in public buildings, ballrooms and grand entries of luxury homes. Some sky-lights are externally exposed to the outside whilst others are built within the building and backlit to create ambiance or just as a feature. Now, they can be used to create a heritage appearance or complement a contemporary home – whatever you’re looking for, we can help!
As we design the Skylight to your exact specifications, there is no end to the finish you can achieve! From internal to external, opaque to clear, stained glass to wrought iron features, we ensure the end result is the perfect addition to your home, complementing your architectural style and personal taste.
Recently we installed a complete internal square Sky-light ceiling in Melbourne that was 8 metres by 8 metres with nearly 12,000 coloured pieces of glass, forming a curved perimeter with a 4-metre diameter domed centre. This was backlit with artificial light, for ambiance in a ballroom and looked stunning!
When using glass sky-lights that are exposed to the external part of the building, there are many benefits. In most cases artificial lighting is not needed during the day. In colder weather, the heat from the sun can warm the space and reduce the cost of heating, thus impacting less on the environment.
Other benefits of an external sky-light is that natural light also aids in the reduction of mould build up, as sunlight is one of the best natural disinfectants.
