Indoor shopping with an open-air feeling: 64 VELUX Ridgelight modules are a highlight at the centre of this light-flooded shopping mall

Lister Markt is a retail and service centre in neo-resort style in the northernmost village on the island of Sylt. The centre combines a hotel, restaurants and shops in the island's first covered mall. 

A 20m long and 4m wide Ridgelight with 64 VELUX Modular Skylights supplies the mall with natural daylight.

The generous dual pitched rooflight solution directs unfiltered daylight inside the centre, while the unobstructed sky views contribute to the well-being of visitors. Internal roller blinds provide protection against solar glare and ensure a pleasant indoor climate.

VELUX Modular Skylights are part of the ventilation and fire protection concept. The Ridgelight incorporates smoke venting modules as well as fixed modules. The former contribute to natural air circulation and smoke extraction in the event of a fire.

Thanks to the lighting scenario, visitors to the passage often forget that they are not outdoors at all but are in fact in a closed building.

When choosing the rooflight solution, we opted for the elegant, industrially prefabricated modular skylights from VELUX because, in contrast to the traditional metal skylight construction that is only implemented on site, they can be installed quickly and easily.

Ready-to-install components enable quick installation

The quick and easy installation of the VELUX Modular Skylights led to the decision for an industrially prefabricated product.

"The elements can be assembled without the involvement of various installers, suppliers and other craftsmen on the construction site, and without the material having to be cut, adapted or processed in some other way on the roof," explains Ulrich Huber, IGA Haus GmbH & Co. KG.

"With the standardised solution from VELUX, the ready-to-install parts and components were delivered just in time and could then be installed by a crane driver and two fitters on the roof in quick, simple steps."
