Northlights transform a school from 1961 to a bright and inspiring learning environment

Originally built in 1961, the school is characterised by classic high-quality 60s architecture and design.

However, many years of use have taken their toll on the building and a recent refurbishment has brought the school up to modern standards. As part of the renovation, the school’s 60 year old skylights were replaced by 104 VELUX modular skylights that created a bright and attractive learning environment.

The renovation has been well received by the local community and has helped restore pride among students and teachers at the school.

  • Four rows of Northlights, 104 modules in all, were installed.
  • The installation was completed in less than two weeks.
  • 7 venting skylight modules ensure fresh air throughout the day.

Students and teachers are especially pleased with the central atrium, which echoes the original aesthetics of the building and fills the school with daylight.

Headmaster

The skylight was key to the positive change. The architects always strived to open the building up, let in light and create visual depth. We have no dead corners, and no dark corners.

Architect

Through its overall concept, i.e. making sure all needs are attended to, VELUX has turned the skylight concept into an opportunity. It is a solution that we are confident with and happy to recommend.
