Winning trio with ambitious projects

Three projects showed off the design skills of Keymer Double Glazing, Thames Valley Windows, and Vale Orangeries and earned them winning places in the Atlas Installation of the Month competition.

Gareth Thomas, sales and marketing director at Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions, said: “Our Installation of The Month competition is all about getting the industry talking about design and inspiring installers to be ambitious with their projects. We are overwhelmed by these three amazing installations which show just how much can be achieved with clever design and innovative products.”

Keymer Double Glazing from Burgess Hill, West Sussex created a one-off underground extension on a grand, multi-level property in Sussex.

An important element of the design was to consider the flow of light in the property and to frame the beautiful views over acres of private land. Keymer created a generously sized family room, which is sunken into the ground. The extension is illuminated from above by a large Atlas lantern and features a wall of slim-framed aluminium sliding doors which open out on to the newly landscaped garden.

Thames Valley Windows designed an orangery on a detached dormer bungalow in Twyford, Berkshire. The owners of the property had originally wanted to install a modest-sized conservatory on the rear of the property to create an open plan kitchen diner, but chose  much larger scale orangery after speaking to the company.

The scheme spans the entire width of the rear of the property and incorporates ample spaces for cooking, eating and relaxing. The large, contemporary multi-functional extension features three Atlas glazed roof lanterns to flood the 45m2 space with light.

A vast double-storey extension on a property in Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan was designed by Vale Orangeries to contrast with the rest of the house and take advantage of its south facing orientation.

Vale Orangeries’ design incorporated lots of crisp modern materials and acres of glass to create a light-filled contemporary family space. A large 1.2m x 2.3m Atlas Flat Rooflight and a wall of glass adds to the dramatic visual impact of the extension.

Each month, the winning installer will scoop a £200 Screwfix voucher and a £50 Majestic Wine voucher, plus trade industry PR and entry into the Atlas Installer of the Year award finals. All entries submitted with completed installation pictures will receive an Atlas thermal mug.
