A bespoke lantern roof will instantly add style and natural light to even the darkest of properties.
A characteristic feature of modern orangeries and other similar types of glazed extensions, the first roof lanterns were conceived back in the Middle Ages, initially for use in religious buildings. Nowadays, a David Salisbury lantern roof graces many of the most discerning residential addresses around the country.
Lantern roofs enhance Living spaces
From a contemporary kitchen extension to a traditional orangery for a period property or listed building, a bespoke lantern roof will often form the centrepiece of the overall design scheme.
Bespoke Timber Lantern Roofs
Rectangular or square lantern roofs tend to be the most common designs but, for something truly eye-catching, a circular or domed lantern roof has been increasing in demand in recent years. The highly technical design and engineering skills required to construct and install a domed roof lantern are such that they have become a David Salisbury speciality, leveraging our more than 35 years of joinery experience.
