Lumenrooflight Featured On Channel 4


Lumen Rooflights has supplied four rooflights for the restoration of a Grade II listed Georgian Mill in the latest series of Channel 4s hit TV show The Restoration Man.

The new series of The Restoration Man follows new owners as they restore, convert and breathe new life into heritage buildings in the UK with the help of presenter, architect George Clarke. The programme follows each stage of the design and build process as well as looking into the rich history of each property and their former importance to the local community.

For the restoration of Thrum Mill, in Rothbury, Northumberland, the ambitious plans included a complete replacement of the roof. As only a few windows existed in the Mill, and the owners were not permitted to make any more openings, owing to its listed status, a major feature of the renovations comprised how light would enter into the building.

The owners selected Lumen LR-1 conservation style rooflights, which replicate a traditional Victorian design.

Managing Director of Lumen Rooflights, Paul Trace, said: "Our range of conversation rooflights are ideal for installation in period properties, listed buildings and barn conversions, and anywhere a new or replacement traditional sky light can be installed. The rooflight is unobtrusive and sympathetic to the original, external architecture of the building and therefore an ideal choice for this particular project."
