OF THE MONTH
John Knight Glass
John Knight Glass have been announced as Atlas’s December winner of the “Installation of the Month” competition winning £200 worth of John Lewis vouchers and £50 Majestic Wine vouchers.
John Knight Glass have ended their year on a high by winning December’s Atlas Installation of the Month competition with a stylish 3m x 2m Atlas lantern installed on a 300-year old cottage.
Located in the serene village of Parkgate on the Wirral, the homeowners of this French Country style cottage were looking to refurbish their kitchen to create a much larger space. Frustrated at their limited space, they made the brave decision to have an extension built at the rear of the property. It was essential that the new extension contrasted with the cottage’s historical style and structure. The homeowners contacted their local installer, John Knight Glass, for their advice and expertise.
After looking through the designs, it was decided to incorporate a roof lantern to bring light into the traditional-style kitchen extension. Visiting John Knight’s showroom, the homeowners looked through the roof options available and came across the Atlas display lantern. The team at John Knight Glass recommended the Atlas lantern as the best choice for this project due to its high performance and versatile design. The clean, understated looks of the Atlas lantern made it the only roof system that would complement the style and proportions of the new extension.
The bespoke colour service also allowed for the homeowners to choose a stone colour for the lantern to blend with the white exterior of the property. To match the lantern roof, French doors and windows were installed in the same colour.
The end result is simply stunning and certainly captures people’s attention. John Knight Glass showed that the Atlas lantern is equally at home on a period property. Greg Knight, general manager at John Knight Glass, said: “The homeowners knew what they wanted to achieve to complement their historic property and the design and choice of materials was very important to them. The key here was to draw as much light into the extension as possible and the Atlas lantern was the perfect choice to achieve this without overwhelming the period architecture of the building. It is a lovely project and the homeowner is, quite rightly, delighted with the end result.”
