One of several custom skylights delivered for Virginia Kerridge Architect. The Crows Nest skylight brings light and air into the living area below.
Tilt’s operable skylight was to be one of the key features for the architect’s design, which aimed to make the most of previously hidden city views.
The project’s major challenge was the size of the skylight, which we maximised to a point where there was no need for a mullion to reinforce the pane. Tilt collaborated closely with the architect to optimise the design and balance aesthetics with inline with budget requirements.
An aesthetically-beautiful design, made from a large single pane of glass. Standard skylights are unable to replicate this result as they require a series of several individual frames.
The ventilation skylight is based on the same mechanical and structural principles as Tilt’s roof access skylights, and is particularly beneficial for pitched roofs.
I really enjoy working with Tilt because they are determined to achieve a quality outcome and they’re on the same wavelength in terms of design.
