Large fixed skylights from Glazing Vision help bring the outside in

Large fixed skylights from Glazing Vision help bring the outside in

The architect of this country house in the marina ‘t Raboes has created a connection with the outdoors in, utilising large fixed skylights from Glazing Vision to bring daylight into the house and frame the surroundings.

The horizontal application of large glass surfaces demands a lot from the design and after many discussions, the architect was confident that Glazing Vision was the rooflight manufacturer that could implement what they had in mind. Insulated glass with excellent insulation values and no framework in site. Glass that blends seamlessly into the architect’s design is a perfect way to bring the outdoor feeling inside.

Three multipart skylights have made this architectural vision become a reality. To make it possible to darken the rooms, Glazing Vision has applied custom-made sun protection from Topshade.

At the spot where the river Eem flows into the Eemmeer, architect De Kort van Schaik designed the country residence ‘t Raboes. The clients wanted to create a place where they could fully experience nature, but also withdraw from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The skylight forms a completely frameless glass roof, which gives you the feeling of being outside even more. Sabine Marcelis, who designed the stunning yellow epoxy bathroom furniture, states that she has designed her dream bathroom. The subtle rotation of the furniture gives you a fantastic view of the landscape from the bath.

Taken aback by this stunning property, the architectural press has been impressed with all aspects of the design. De Volkskrant gives the Huis op ‘t Raboes five stars. “The Rotterdam architectural firm De Kort Van Schaik designed a house in which you live with the elements and at the same time are protected against them, thanks to a thick concrete coat.”
