The demand for more daylight entry comes from the director of the retirement home. Director A. Kenis: "It is a classified building that is protected by the city of Brussels. It is being renovated into a modern and contemporary retirement home. As it concerns the healthcare sector, there is a minimum requirement of daylight provision per room.
Director A. Kenis:'' To bring in as much daylight as possible with as few modifications as possible, Solatube was chosen. This has happened, taking into account the fact that it is a protected building with a French roof made of zinc. The appearance of the building was important to preserve. This could be achieved through Solatube!
The daylight is very pleasant, and it certainly doesn't look too cold. The daylight is diffused throughout the room without being blinding and yet it feels soft and cozy. In our next renovation work, rooms will also be provided with Solatubes where necessary!
