Michael Nöbauer has worked with VELUX on previous projects and is well aware of the advantages of this collaboration. He often shows nearby houses he designed with roof windows to clients, opening and shutting the shades to prove his point that daylight considerably improves the room’s atmosphere.
For a more precise image of a project in planning, he turns to simulation tools provided by VELUX, pointing out that proof is a better argument in dialogue with clients than a mere exchange of opinions. He also discusses daylight distribution diagrams with technology-affine clients: they are always surprised by how dark average rooms are.
Roof windows allow for full privacy and provide an ever-changing play of sun in the rooms. Inside this house, one forgets the neighbouring buildings and focuses on the forest-like garden.
