A school undergoing change
With a history that stretches as far back as 980, Roskilde Cathedral School has seen it all through the centuries. In 1969, the school moved from its premises in the town centre to larger buildings south of the town, but last year it was decided that the school had outgrown these premises. Christian Blands is the school’s vice principal and the developer representative for the major building project. He is pleased with the solutions that are now in place, not least the new VELUX Modular Skylights.
“They’ve been installed in common areas, where they create a fantastic atmosphere. The light cheers you up while you’re walking to wherever you’re going. It puts you in a good mood”, says Christian Blands.The vice principal is referring especially to the 800m2 canteen, which was given a new extension shortly after the summer break. A large VELUX ridgelight application extending across the room marks a clear distinction between the new space and old spaces. Daylight dominates in the new area – an effect that the school has quickly managed to make the most of.
