De Roek is a small-scale holiday park in a completely secluded location in the Veluwe woods just outside Otterlo. There are, among other things, sixteen Finnish holiday bungalows and a care farm. De Roek is focused on sustainability and uses solar panels, organic cleaning products, blankets and products in the store. In addition.
The holiday bungalows are all in a secluded location surrounded by trees which take a lot of light away from the windows. As a result, the kitchen areas in the bungalows were dark so electrical lights always had to be switched on.
A Ø 35 cm Solatube was installed into each bungalow providing much needed daylight, bringing the outside inside. In this way, guests retain the feeling of nature indoors. In addition, the Solatubes fit perfectly with De Roek's sustainability policy.
The first time I walked in after the Solatube installation, I thought the guests had left the lights on. With the impressive amount of daylight the Solatube provides the guests really now only need to use the electrical lights at night.
