Stoke Newington School, Ritchlight Skylights

Five Ritchlight mono north lights, each measuring 11m long by 1m slope length, create an impressive feature above the courtyard turned dining room at Stoke Newington School and Sixth Form in North London.

Built in the 1960’s the school underwent a £17 million refurbishment as part of the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.  Part of the works involved infilling the large internal quad space to create a new dining area and hall which now boasts boldly painted and colourful reveals.  The pupils used to eat in four separate locations on site and now the dining hall is right at the heart of the school reflecting the whole community ethos which is central to the school’s philosophy.

Glazed in clear stepped glass with 6mm heat soaked outer and 12mm Argon, 6.4mm low E laminated inner, the Ritchlight north lights were the ideal rooflight choice to avoid solar glare and hot spots to ensure a comfortable and pleasant internal environment in the dining hall.

Brett Martin Daylights Systems got involved in this project at the design stage when the architect wanted the rooflights to meet specific acoustics and light transmission levels, which was easily achieved by discussing the exact requirements with the technical team.  The Brett Martin team also designed the mono and gable flashings and finally installed the rooflights.

As the huge sculptural north lights are overlooked by the school buildings around it the glazing bars were powder coated, externally as well as internally, to complement the surrounding designs and buildings.
