Flat roof windows in a metropolitan setting

24 of November '22


Near downtown Chicago, the third largest city in the United States, stands a building with a large open terrace. Residents of this city, which is a hotbed of business, culture and science, care about its overall image and invest in solutions to ensure the highest quality and fit with the environment in which they operate.

Not far from Chicago's Downtown are residential neighborhoods. Houses in this part of the city are built on narrow and long lots, and their location one next to the other severely limits the flow of natural light. The installation of many vertical windows does not help much in such a case, and further limits the privacy of homeowners who "keep an eye" on neighbors living just behind the wall.

On the flat roof of one such private house, the owners decided to create a functional terrace, under which there is a usable dressing room and a comfortable bathroom. To provide adequate light for these rooms, two DXW flat roof windows from FAKRO were installed. The installation of windows in the ceiling allowed natural light to flow into the interiors and gave the investment a modern and comfortable finish. The terrace has also benefited. The even finish of the floor with windows that can be walked on without obstruction has made the terrace space very comfortable to use.

The DXW window from FAKRO, is an innovative solution for flat roofs. Thanks to its special design with reinforced load-bearing capacity and anti-slip coating, the DXW window can be walked on freely, allowing unhindered movement on terraces and roofs. In use, it is also safe, since its surface faces the roof covering and there is no risk of tripping. In addition, such a visual "blending" of the window into the roof provides maximum aesthetics, and turns the new space into a fully functional part of the house.
