This energy-efficient library delivers high levels of daylight thanks to the VELUX Longlight and VELUX Ridgelight solutions

Integral to this project was the need to create a bright and comfortable environment for reading and learning.

The building consumes little energy, thanks to geothermal heating, a ventilation system and natural lighting provided by VELUX modular skylights positioned on the roof.

The automatic and programmable venting modules naturally ventilate the building and improve the air quality.

 VELUX Modular Skylights also offer reinforced heat insulation, in summer and winter, to create an ideal indoor climate all year round.

Director of the Lezoux Media Library

We no longer need either artificial light or air conditioning in the heart of the building.

Quick and easy to install

Each skylight module was delivered to site fully prefabricated with pre-assembled glazing, as well as mounting brackets and clamps for the ridgelight configuration. The Media Library opened its doors to the public in June 2017.
