The use of VELUX roof windows in the project gave the family an enhanced perception of height. Due to planning restrictions, the architects needed to keep the roofline low. The living space has eaves as low as 1.5m, so the addition of roof windows provided expansive views of the sky above, which significantly increased the feeling of height and influx of light within the room.
Overall, Clearwater is an incredibly social building, designed to maximise space through natural light without losing its intimate family atmosphere. Through the combination of VELUX roof windows and full height glazed door openings on the gables, the home feels spacious and light, and makes the most of the Cornish seaside views.
"The house is just lovely, I can't tell you how much we are enjoying living here!"
