Mottisfont Abbey

Mottisfont Abbey is a historical priory and country estate in Hampshire, operated by the National Trust. Our Bespoke Design Team created a suite of Neo® style trapezoidal Rooflights to feature on the corten corrugated roof of their new visitor centre. The project required close collaboration between the architect’s team at Burd Haward Architects Ltd, Beard Construction and our design team in order to ensure all the angles matched perfectly. To support this, a bespoke base frame was designed for the flashing to run from the top of the corrugated corten and down to the frame channel, passing over the frame edge and sealing the opening. A neoprene interlayer was placed between the corten and steel rooflights to separate the two metals.

A total of six rooflights were installed at a 45-degree pitch and a further two at a 27-degree pitch. The rooflights were hinged at the top end with a motorised opening to provide ventilation and temperature control for the comfort of visitors and staff. The corten roof sailed over the top of the frame edge concealing part of the water channel for a clean look.
