Architectural Lanterns

If you really want to make a statement, then you should opt for an architectural lantern from Prestige Roof Lanterns UK.

Contemporary Lanterns

Our contemporary lanterns are made to fit your precise requirements and, therefore, are based on completely bespoke designs.

Although contemporary lanterns are popular in more modern properties, they can also be created in conjunction with historically-themed or traditional properties.

Ultimately, our contemporary lanterns are designed to fit your home exactly.

Curved Lanterns

A curved lantern really does make for the most prestigious lantern possible. Using our advanced technology, Prestige Roof Lanterns UK can design and manufacture a curved roof lantern to fit your property’s style exactly, and let the maximum amount of light into your home.

Made from timber and glass, our curved glass roof lanterns will add style and grandeur to your home, no matter what your property’s style.

Hardwood Roof Lanterns

All of the roof lanterns from Prestige Roof Lanterns UK are manufactured using a premium choice of FSC-sourced hardwood and timber. Whether you choose oak or timber, you can be sure that you are opting for a high-quality wood that will last a lifetime with proper, yet minimal, care and maintenance.

A Changing Continuum of Size, Shape and Style

From the classic hipped rectangular prism to fluid sweeping butterfly domes, lantern creations vary extensively in dimension and design catering to both practical needs like overspill and dramatic showmanship. The common thread? A discerning eye optimizing interplay between architectural lines and ample sunlight diffusion.

While no officiating body dictates definitive categorization, several distinct lantern genres have emerged through building tradition. Let us explore the methodology shaping the array available.

Ambient Meets Automatic – Fusing Form with Smart Functions

Once specifying size and shape foundations to harmonize with surrounding aesthetics, shifting focus to enhanced technological integrations escalates function matching form elegance. Integrated LED nodes with intuitive color temperature shifting via mobile apps dynamically elevate mood lighting complementing life events below.

Motorized aperture louvers deepen energy savings by automating daylight modulation and seasonally calibrate insulating solar film tinting. Acoustic sensors trigger partial openings to equalize sudden pressure shifts from volatile storms. The creative applications for home automation elevating your lantern beyond set-and-forget daylight portals are endless. Harness innovation to put on your personal shows.

A Consultative Approach Guaranteeing Your Satisfaction

While we specialize in stunning lantern builds encompassing both established convention and modern tech-infused advances, we never impose or restrict your vision’s scope.

Your full satisfaction through collaborative creation tailored to how you wish to enjoy the space stands paramount. Our successes emerge most profoundly when working in unified partnership rather than transactional client provider roles.

Please contact us freely even in early concept stages or to debate aspirational ideas so we may adapt accordingly. Crafting your perfect lantern means deeply understanding your deepest motivations through open conversations. We look forward to brainstorming together soon!

When it comes to infusing your architecture with the gift of light from above, Prestige Roof Lanterns offers an unparalleled breadth of roof lantern shapes, sizes and technical innovation sure to elevate your space to new heights.

From the understated elegance of hardwood trimmed rectangular inset lanterns honoring traditional conventions to the grandeur of electronically augmented, visually arresting curved horizon bands customized purely for your outlooks – our artisans have mastered implementing bespoke vision into reality.

Though categories attempt to organize the vast continuum of lantern forms developed through history, in the end each is artfully hand-sculpted around your distinct needs and dreams.

Through collaborative consultations rather than isolated transactions, we pride ourselves on forging partnerships where your deepest motivations shine through as we translate aspirations into skylight centerpieces designed to your priorities.

Contact us today to explore the many bespoke lighting opportunities welcoming you to ascend beyond the commonplace. Our only aim is to unveil your full potential for enjoying the spaces you most treasure through atmospheric lantern craftsmanship built to last generations as our gifts to you.

The key focus areas I aimed to summarize:

  • Breadth of size, shape and style options
  • Blending bespoke customization with expertise/innovation
  • Importance of consultative creative process
  • Lanterns as artistic hand-made investments
  • Uplifting spaces via custom skylight artisanship
  • Long-lasting transformations built together
