Thanks to VELUX Modular Skylights, René Guest school now provides children with beautiful natural light which is conducive to learning
The challenge on this project was to bring more daylight into the heart of the building, between the new and the old premises. Daylight from 60 VELUX Modular Skylights now illuminates the hallway and classrooms with largely glazed partitions.
The project is based on the study conducted by the International centre for Indoor Environment and Energy (ICIE), and the Technical University of Denmark (2013). These institutions were motivated by the development of better learning environments.
Built in the 1950s, the school corridors were dark and relied on artificial light. Thanks to the VELUX modular glass roof solution, the René Guest School now offers plenty of daylight that is ideal for learning.
The study demonstrated that children's learning capacity increases by up to 15% in a healthy indoor environment.
