More light indoors, a great view out: roof chambers with mini hatches have had their day. To use the topmost room roughly, to illuminate it opulently by lightlessness and to equip it chicly and practically, is chance and challenge at the same time. As an installation around the skylight now presents itself as a design option in infinite variations with infinite possibilities.
The common denominator is always maximum functionality: all of them have sturdy hinges, are equipped with intelligent mechanisms and can be ruffled up with ingenious attributes such as child-proof locks or heat dams. Which format fits where and which version is practicable when, has to do with personal preferences, atmospheric desires and structural requirements.
Illumination from the very top is also possible. For flat pitched roofs, flat skylight windows are the optimal solution. They partially replace the ceiling and provide both opulent light incidence and exciting architectural accents – with or without opening options. The pinnacle: the over ridge glazing.
