Tew Farmhouse and Barns

Hookerswell in Tew, Oxfordshire was a conversion of a grade II listed farmyard into six luxury holiday lets. Working to the client’s brief, the Architectural Designers at Charlie Luxton Design scoped out the design of the luxury accommodation to achieve a high-quality finish whilst retaining the idyllic barn-like character.

Neo rooflights were selected for their frameless interior and edge-to-edge glazing technology to maximise the viewable space and flood the top floor rooms with natural daylight. The technical team at The Rooflight Co also advised egress Neo Rooflights to provide a means of suitable fire escape access and ensure the buildings conformed with building regulations.

The Neo Rooflight demonstrated its suitability to be used within the grade II listed farmyard within the context of it originally being a historic non-domesticated building. The rooflights were not only practical within the design, but the appearance was respectful to the aesthetic of the times.

These luxury apartments in Tew are a prime example of the exquisite outcomes that can be achieved when specifying the highest quality building materials throughout the property.

'Working with The Rooflight Company was a collaborative process where we created a bespoke surround detail on the rooflight to allow for a clean, crisp and minimal upstand in a standing seam zinc roof. Being able to refine details with a manufacturer is always a great way to ensure a beautiful result.'
