Meet the team behind Traditional Roof Lanterns

Company History

Traditional Roof Lanterns has been designing and manufacturing timber roof lanterns exclusively for almost 30 years, a unique achievement.

Applications have included roof lanterns for domestic building extensions, orangeries, commercial premises (especially pubs and restaurants), country houses and stately homes. A significant number of these commissions have been for listed buildings.

The company was founded by Christopher Cooper, a name now well known to many architects by virtue of a product and company service second to none. Traditional Roof Lanterns is able to take a project from feasibility and design through to bespoke build in our workshops. The company is still considered to be the market leader in hardwood traditional roof lanterns.
