The idea of using the sun to light up a room is not a new concept. In fact the idea of using openings to let in light developed in ancient Rome and continued past the middle ages. Structures as old as the Pantheon (still in use today) have used top lighting. Although larger openings similar to the Pantheon’s oculus were not practical in Europe due to weather concerns, the idea that a building could have light and venting was popular.
VELUX has revolutionized the commercial skylight market with the introduction of the new VELUX Dynamic Dome, an innovative product that balances the structural demands of industry professionals with an architecturally progressive design.
