Roof competition

Velux has launched a national competition that celebrates architects and designers for the most inventive and modern use of roof windows in a residential project.

The competition invites submissions from architects based in the UK and Ireland who can showcase the design, aesthetics and detailing of any completed project that includes a Velux roof window.

The winner will receive £2,000 in prize money and a Velux curved glass roof window to use in their next project.

Grant Sneddon, product manager for Velux, said: “The Velux roof window award is a great opportunity for architects and designers to be recognised for their innovative and imaginative use of daylight, achieved through using roof windows to transform a building into something quite special.”
