The attic of a 1980s single-family home has gained a modern look and additional space. Thanks to the use of the FAKRO EDT dormer, its residents can today enjoy a beautiful view of the Amsterdam polder and enjoy plenty of natural light. The building is located in a row of similar houses, in the town of Zaandam (near Amsterdam).
Beautiful view of Amsterdam
Last year we bought a house built in the 1980s. We both love DIY and thought that giving it a more contemporary feel would be a good challenge. When our son was born, we decided to make the attic a real "mom and dad" paradise. The first thing we did was to replace the old dormer with a modern version so we could finally enjoy the view of the Amsterdam polder," says the homeowner.

The FAKRO dormer provides additional daylight, space and a beautiful view of the Amsterdam pol der, the homeowner comments.
Additional light and space
The new dormer makes a huge difference. A series of skylight windows brings a lot of additional light into the interior from different angles. As a result, the attic room appears more spacious. To enjoy the view even more, we decided to add three tilt-and-turn windows in the lower row of the dormer. When opening a window, we usually leave it in the tilted position. This gives us a clear view of the outside and we can even stand under the window," the owner adds.
