Energy-efficient and the feeling of being close to nature

The hotel and spa complex combines a closeness to nature with the latest technology and offers the highest level of comfort and service. In 2016, the facility was extended to create a themed restaurant. In order to provide the new restaurant with adequate lighting, Steinberg & Koeppen Architects decided to bring daylight through the roof and specified VELUX Modular Skylights.

  • Four Ridgelights, each with a length of around 8 m and a total area of almost 77 m2, transform the interior of the restaurant into a light-filled relaxing space for guests.
  • The balanced lighting conditions reduce the need for artificial light, while the warm sun rays entering through the skylights ensure that less heating is required in the winter months.

The impressive skylight design creates a wonderfully unfiltered lighting mood depending on the time of day as well as sky views for guests.

One module installed per hour

In Datteln, four workers were able to install 64 modules in just 64 hours. The Modular Skylights also form part of the comfort and smoke ventilation strategy, including four smoke venting modules that not only ensure natural air circulation and thus ensure a healthy indoor climate, but also contribute to smoke clearance in the event of a fire.
