Beverley Library is a grand, solid, red brick building with tiled and copper roofs, originally opened in 1906. It forms an important part of the urban centre, linked to the modern Treasure House and opposite the County Hall (the main offices of East Riding of Yorkshire Council).
Xtralite made a big splash with the Nottingham office of Architects and Interior Designers S&P when they were selected to design and supply five barrel vaults and rooflights for the new £10 million leisure centre at Braunstone, in Leicester.
A continuous rooflight—using Lumira® technology from Xtralite - in the form of an annulus has been used by architects YRM to create a special quality of natural lighting in an important, new university building.
Canning Street School is a single storey primary school for 420 pupils. Originally built in 1984, the design uses an informal open plan arrangement based around a central ‘street’ with a distinctive spinal ridgelight.
Environmental improvements were the focus of this substantial atrium rooflight replacement, incorporating photovoltaic cells and automatic opening lights for natural ventilation.
