Home Living : September 22nd 2009
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 22, 2009 5 Skylights designed for the older home RENOVATING an older house can be a balance of retaining the original charm of the building and incorporating a modern approach by using space and light. It is possible to achieve this balance using modern techniques, such as skylights, to bring natural light into an older home. Tony Campanella bought his 1940s bungalow 16 years ago and has gradually renovated and adapted it to suit his family. Typical of the period, the house had little natural light, which Mr Campanella overcame by installing five Skydome skylights. ''I installed large skylights in the kitchen and living areas to bring in more natural light. We put another one in an enclosed side walkway and also a vented skylight in the main bathroom to improve light and airflow. We also converted the attic into a bedroom and installed a Skywindow. Skydome managing director Michael Bonello said even though skylights were a relatively modern building technology, they could still blend in with older architectural styles. ''Using decorative finishes and diffusers, it is possible to match a skylight to an older-style home. Our Renaissance series has been popular with owners of older-style houses as it has a design that tends to suit both modern and older homes,'' he said. Details: skydome.com.au or 131 424.
