Creating vibrant spaces and openness with natural light
The Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown project was delivered by Moston Construction as part of a wider specification to modernise the council building and create a new public space for the delivery of important council services. With this goal came the requirement for creating a sense of vibrancy and openness which could support public engagement and customer service for those in the locality. The creation of natural light and ventilation was deemed crucial to achieving this goal, with the VELUX modular skylight system offering the perfect combination of these factors.
When assessing their options, The Architects identified the VELUX modular skylight system as “the only suitable product” for bringing natural light into such a large space. Through working closely between the architecture department and Moston Construction, VELUX operated in both a consultative and supplier role to support the greater ambitions of the project. This consultative relationship was necessitated by the requirement for a very specific length of skylight whilst ensuring the system would integrate with the council’s environmental strategies.
