A project for more space and daylight

Turning an unused attic space into a warm, welcoming area for working from home and working out. That was the original plan of Jean-Christophe, who also had daylight at the top of his list. The owner’s plan was to renovate the entire house and create rooms in the attic which can be used for the working style that became the norm in the past years: in this separated, yet well-lighted area of the house one can easily stay focused during working from home and get motivation from the sunlight to work on their muscles too. The double purpose of this project was to increase the house’s living space and improve its energy efficiency, coupled with a strong demand for daylight. They also marked great attention to the entry of daylight.

Quality and reliability

The homeowner was determined to create a space that is going to stand the test of time and will serve as a useful area of the home for years and years. "We chose VELUX products because they have an exceptionally wide range which enabled us to find a solution that exceeded our expectations in terms of daylight. Moreover, the VELUX brand represents guaranteed quality and reliability for roof renovations", says Jean-Christophe, the homeowner. A VELUX roof window is perfect for adding daylight and fresh air into small rooms, staircases, and bathrooms, and it did amazing changes in this particular attic space as well. They can be installed lower, so they also offer a wider view than most roof windows.

Main benefits of VELUX roof windows

Once the roof was opened, the change was immediate, and the homeowner could tell that he will get what he wants: "A new room flooded with light and with a view of the garden thanks to VELUX solutions. The roof windows provide daylight and comfort", says Jean-Christophe.

The challenge was to bring natural daylight into a room where there were no previous openings. The owners wanted a comfortable room because they planned to install an office there as well as have room to work out. It was obvious we would have to add a window. It’s always nicer to be able to look outside instead of just at a wall.

A new room

"I was very pleased and surprised; the results were even better than I had imagined. A new room flooded with light and with a view of the garden thanks to VELUX roof windows", says Jean-Christophe, who now enjoys using the added space in his home. Thanks to the roof windows, a beautiful view is also available from the attic, which makes the spaces more open and airy. It creates a connection to the outside, brings nature into the home, and gives the whole attic an energetic yet content vibe.

Wanted a bright, spacious room

"We started off with a windowless attic space. The client wanted a bright, spacious room where he could install exercise equipment and an office area. The VELUX products brought in plenty of daylight and, especially, enabled us to create more floor space. You have a nice view outside, even when you are sitting on the floor.", Sarl Leveque, Leveque Entreprise.
