A lot of work

Living spaces with a garden are in short supply in Hamburg. The fact that there was a lot of work to be done didn't scare off this planner and communication designer duo.

DURATION OF RENOVATION

Months of living in an active construction site were worth the payoff 

When it comes to creating a welcoming and contemporary atmosphere for living, the numerous new windows in the roof and façade play a key role: They make the house light and airy, making the formerly dated look what it should be: a thing of the past. 

Main benefits of getting VELUX roof windows

  1. Lots of daylight: The two generous electric roof windows facing opposite each other not only illuminate the upper corridor and staircase, but also the hallway on the ground floor. "We wanted maximum brightness across the entire width of the corridor", said Matthias Förster (homeowner) when explaining the two swing windows from VELUX. "As a result, we practically never switch on the lights in the daytime."

  2. Optimal ventilation: "Especially in the bathroom, it is very pleasant that, after showering, for example, the humid air can quickly and easily move out through the roof window", explains Vivian Förster (homeowner). In addition, the Försters benefit from what is known as the chimney effect.

  3. Playing under daylight: Two VELUX roof windows open the space to the south at different heights, so six-year-old Mateo and his little brother can play in the daylight or do their homework later on.

Two VELUX roof windows open the space to the south at different heights, so six-year-old Mateo and his little brother can play in the daylight or do their homework later on. Highlight of the room: The couple designed the bed themselves with a tent-shaped wooden roof. VELUX roof windows also provide plenty of natural light in the master bedroom and in the family bathroom.
