The interior of the cottage fits with Patrick and Stine's desire to blend in with nature. All walls are clad in birch veneer, which brings the pale shoreline colours of the coastal landscape inside and the interior is simple, harmonious and attractive – much of it Patrick's own home-built solutions. But the real stars are the sky, the sea and the truly special light here on Røsnæs.
"We have the reflection from the sea all year round, and it's really special to sense the sea through the windows. We can lie in bed and listen to the waves through the open VELUX flat roof windows and the light is incredible."
The family on the benefits of VELUX flat roof windows:
1. Ideal indoor climate -
"We chose VELUX ACTIVE for our new roof windows and we are happy about that now. We never have to worry about forgetting to close them when we drive away, because they do it themselves, just as they air the space when it gets hot in the summer. It's easy for us to circulate the cool air and on days when it's too windy to keep the patio doors open, it's the VELUX flat roof windows that we open."
2. Close to nature -
"Being able to hear and see the sea and nature around us through the VELUX flat roof windows has given us a special connection with the surroundings. It's also pretty incredible how much light they let in all day long."
3. Architecture in step with the landscape -
"The ground was difficult to build on and we had given ourselves the challenge that we did not want any vertical window elements facing north. The VELUX solutions helped us to succeed with the project."
