Zwin is a protected nature reserve in the Belgian town of Knokke-Heist on the border between Flanders and the Netherlands . What makes Zwin nature park special is that it is a nature reserve and visitor park all in one.
The nature park has an attractive and spacious visitor centre, however in some areas the building is not provided with enough daylight. A solution was sought to supplement the daylight in the relevant rooms. One of those spaces is a meeting room, however daylight is not always desirable in such a room, particularly when projector screen presentations are held. In addition, the products must meet the requirements set by BREEAM.
A total of 15 Solatubes were used to solve the shortage of daylight. Nine Solatubes were installed into the employees offices and the remaining six into the meeting room. The daylight systems in the meeting room were all equipped with a daylight dimmer so that the light level provided can be dimmed as required during presentations. The use of the Solatube daylight systems also contributed to the visitor centre meeting the BREEAM standards in the field of daylight.
