Light Raft

A prefabricated, lightweight roof terrace, situated on existing roof.

The structure, which was conceived like a boat with a timber core and a glass-fibre reinforced resin sandwich outer layer, was developed together with Price & Myers 3D department. The geometry derived through protecting the user’s and the neighbours’ privacy from overlooking and from the client’s desire for the space to open outwards, towards the view of the urban landscape. Pigmented GRP was chosen for its textured translucency and its capacity to retain visual privacy to and from neighbours. When lit from within the structure it also gives off a soft, glowing indirect light.
