Cosy place full of natural light

FAKRO as Manufacturers

The attic in private house from the ‘80’s gained modern look and extra space with an abundance of natural light thanks to the FAKRO EDT dormer. Nowadays, the inhabitants can enjoy a beautiful view of the polder of Amsterdam. The house is situated in a row of similar houses in the city of Zaandam (near Amsterdam).

Beautiful view of Amsterdam

‘Last year we bought a house erected in the 80’s. We both love to do odd jobs and thought it was a good challenge to make this house more contemporary. When our son was born, we decided to make the attic a real ‘mom and dad’ paradise. The first thing we did, was replacing the old dormer with a modern one so we could finally enjoy the view of the polder of Amsterdam.' – says the home owner.

'The FAKRO dormer ensures extra daylight, space and a beautiful view of the polder of Amsterdam' - comments the home owner

Extra light and space

‘The new dormer makes a world of difference. A number of roof windows ensure that a lot of extra light comes inside from all different angles. The outcome is that the attic room feels more spacious. To enjoy the view even more, we chose to add three top hung pivot windows in the bottom row of the dormer. When we open the window we mostly use the top hung position. This way we have a clear view outside and we can even stand in underneath the window.’
