The Old Royal Station located in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, ceased operations in 1966 and is currently used as a tourist information center and museum, as a way of celebrating its rich heritage. In 2015 the building was devastated by fire, damaging 90% of the structure, so it was restored by Halliday Fraser Munro architects in 2017/2018.
Because the original building had roof lights, for the restoration new roof lights that were as similar to the originals as possible were chosen, but these new roof lights required to have a system that was more energy efficient. So the architects selected VELUX Modular Skylights due to their sustainability credentials, slim profiles, and exceptional energy performance.
About Northlight 25-90°
This VELUX Modular Skylight, is composed of row modules, that can provide large amounts of glare-free daylight.
Northlight 25-90° is ideal for spaces that require soft light and does not require sub-construction for installation. This solution allows fast and easy closure of the roof, reducing costs, and can be applied in sloped, shed or saw tooth roofs.
