One of my projects recently received a grand prize award from VELUX America LLC in a recent VELUX® Why Skylights Photo Contest for creative use of VELUX skylights! You can read all about the project here. The judges liked the fact that I used two skylights in addition to four windows to provide a light-filled space for my client, a local food writer, who takes photos of her tasty creations in the space.

Watch this space – in the future, I’ll link to a video about the project.

I love skylights. They offer a way to add daylight and ventilation to a space.
