An ideal way to add extra floor space

For the first time, the family decided to sell off part of the house. The current owners wanted to buy an atypical property in the Paris suburbs, a ‘fixer-upper’ that they could transform to reflect their personalities and lifestyle. The current house is divided into 5 apartments on 4 floors. This particular apartment was originally just a 2-room apartment on the 3rd floor beneath the house’s empty attic, an ideal way to add extra floor space.

INSTALLATION AND PRODUCT PRICE

A natural choice

"It was a natural choice. We were looking for products that would integrate seamlessly into the pitched roof. We wanted to open the flat up onto the exterior without building a terrace–because it is a fairly atypical stone house in Meudon–and flood the interior with daylight. The result is amazing", says Anaïs, homeowner.

Main benefits of getting VELUX roof windows

  1. More space and incredible view: "The roof windows allow an amazing amount of daylight from above into the flat and offer a nice view, as if we were right outdoors. The upper floor was much bigger than what we had imagined and much brighter", Anaïs says.

  2. Comfort: "Our fear was getting too hot in the summer but finally we were able to benefit from the natural ventilation. We were also afraid of being bothered by the sound of the rain but the VELUX windows are equipped with glazed windows that are anti-rain noise." , Anaïs says.

  3. More Daylignt: The living room upstairs is bathed in daylight through the many openings. The couple can enjoy a good light, which makes the room more comfortable.
     
Incredible!

"It was a whole new space. The upper floor was much bigger than what we had imagined and much brighter. The roof windows allow an amazing amount of daylight from above into the flat and offer a nice view, as if we were right outdoors", Anaïs says.

The balcony windows enable us to enjoy an outdoor space

There was just one roof window in the attic when they bought it, but it allowed them to see the potential of a breathtaking view of Paris. 
"Therefore, they are essential for natural daylight and as soon as the weather permits, we open them up to enjoy the view. The balcony windows enable us to enjoy an outdoor space when they are open and gain a little extra floor space", Anaïs says.
