VELUX Modular Skylights create interior accents within the historic walls and provide plenty of natural light

The brick architecture of the rubber goods factory, built in 1889, was used by music bands and theatre groups after it was closed in the late 1940s. The building complex underwent a careful full refurbishment in 2015 and once again attracts the creative scene after years of lying empty. VELUX Modular Skylights create exciting interior accents within the historic walls, providing plenty of natural light, and blend inconspicuously into the historic setting.

  • 43 VELUX Modular Skylight modules are used throughout the complex.
  • Several Longlight and Ridgelight solutions in different sizes provide daylight for the ballet school, tailor's shop, coffee roasting house and an event room.
  • Both fixed modules and modules with SHEV function were installed.

The VELUX skylights create an airy atmosphere inside, and contrast with the dark red brick walls.

Different modules for different room situations

The old rooflights did not meet the requirements for heat and fire protection. This offered the opportunity to integrate various VELUX Modular Skylight solutions and VELUX flat roof domes to precisely match the room’s requirements. The tenants were thrilled with the new skylight solution. As were the historic monuments protection authority, who saw the slim profiles of the modules as a bonus.
