Glass sky lights contribute to luminous living

Glass sky lights play a major part in the bright and airy design of designer Jake Dysons home.

Sector commentator Vinny Lee writes in the online pages of the Times, noting that the property features French windows across the back wall of a rear extension, long windows at the front and the aforementioned skylight above the staircase in the hall.

Interconnected study, sitting room, kitchen and dining areas all benefit from natural light due to the glass-rich design of the structure.

"The things I loved about this house were its architectural proportions and the garden, which spans the rear of the house, is edged by mature trees and has a bit of grass, so when I’m out there it is almost like being in the country," Mr Dyson tells the resource.

Meanwhile, sector commentator Phil Spencer recently wrote in the online pages of the Sunday Times that sky lights can be used in conjunction with kitchen extensions to create more spacious-feeling living spaces.
