The positioning of the roof windows is well thought out. As Søren Rose puts it, a minimalist could be drawn to symmetrical placement, with the same number of windows on each side. Instead, the placement of five x two roof (if this is the case)windows on one side and two x two roof (if this is the case)windows on the other side provides flexibility, making it easy to lay out the space and use it for purposes other than a design studio later on. And the placement of the roof windows above one another both opens up a view (from hip height) and brings in light from above.
"The wooden beams are beautiful and evocative, but when there is a roof ridge, beams tend to divide the space into 'above' and 'below', and if there is not sufficient light above the beams, they end up being perceived as the ceiling. With our placement of the roof windows, natural light comes down onto the beams, so that this division dissipates and the space is perceived as high instead of flat. It also produces additional rooflight play in the space," explains Søren Rose.
Benefits of VELUX roof windows
1. Good work light -
in Søren Rose's design studio, the roof windows create optimal light for working.
2. Healthy indoor climate -
VELUX ACTIVE ensures that air is well-circulated and replaced. A good indoor climate improves productivity.
3. A feeling of more space -
the daylight above the wooden beams results in a wonderful feeling of spaciousness. In this case, giving the ceiling height a sense of being doubled.
