A light-coloured floor to aid daylighting ..

When roof window manufacturer VELUX built a new extension at their UK and Ireland head office, Junckers solid wood flooring was the perfect choice to enhance the light-filled space.

Over 800 m2 of Junckers 22mm Beech Harmony two-strip flooring was fitted throughout, forming a unifying surface which links every part of the building, including the impressive entrance, circulation and breakout areas. The contemporary interior uses natural light to full effect, in a perfect demonstration of how VELUX roof windows help create spaces filled with natural daylight, one of the targets of the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge and an essential ingredient for user wellbeing. A light-coloured floor such as beech reflects a lot of natural light which helps enhance lighting levels, further reducing the need for artificial light, and therefore saving energy. In addition, a pale floor will not contribute to overheating, reducing the need for air conditioning systems.
