Tin House

Reminiscent of a Mediterranean village, the award-winning Tin House is snugly cocooned by traditional terraced houses in Shepherd’s Bush, West London. Designed by Henning Stummel as a new home for his family, this impressive property is the winner of the RIBA London Award in 2016. 

The house comprises six interconnected, but distinct pods located around a central courtyard, lending the house a sense of much desired privacy and seclusion. The Rooflight Co was involved from the early planning stage resulting in a set of tailor-made trapezoidal Neo Rooflights, positioned directly over each pod, fitting with millimetre precision to the contours of each roof. 

Within the bedrooms, blackout blinds were specially developed to the bespoke trapezoidal shape for privacy and light control. 

Externally, the rooflight frames were coloured matched to the RAL 8004, Brick Red standing seam metal cladding. Internally the frameless design of the bespoke Neo Rooflights maximises the viewable opening. The rooflights sit effortlessly into the design making it look like there is almost no window at all and the roof is open to the sky.  

'It was terribly exciting when the rooflights finally came in and when they were lifted, and we had got onto the adjacent roof and looked down. It was a major milestone in the development of the project when that happened...The rooflights were a really important part to help bring the whole project to life.'
