Roof Windows: Richmond, Virginia
Impressive 46 roof windows with large glazing surface
A modern design of the multi-family building stands out against the background of the urban layout of Richmond which is the capital of Virginia and one of the oldest cities in the United States. The building is characterized by a number of windows featuring large glazing area and a fashionable, interesting facade.

The building is entirely kept in cold colors, dominated by grey and shades of blue. The roof is covered with grey sheet metal and complemented with one of the most impressive and functional FAKRO roof windows such as Galeria and Duet proSky installed in the combination.
These windows fit perfectly into the roofing thanks to well-matched colors of the cladding. The facade is made of sheet metal panels in the same color to complete the entire design.
Roof Windows are Modern & Functional
When designing attic apartments in Richmond, the architect paid special attention to ensuring the comfort of living for their future residents. The FGH-V Galeria and FDY-V Duet proSky are windows featuring large glazed areas that let inside an abundance of healthy natural light.
This makes residents full of energy and appetite for life. The large window sizes provide a wide view to the outside as well as a sense of space and contact with the surroundings. FAKRO roof windows installed in this building are top shelf products.
The roof with a pitch of 45° and the possibility of installing roof windows featuring large glazed area allowed the contractor to develop the attic by designing flats there. Due to the building regulations, it was not possible to construct a building higher than two floors above ground level.
In this project, windows not only fulfilled their main function of providing light to rooms within the attic space, but also made it possible to construct more apartments. Here the words of appreciation should go to an architect who came up with this project.
Innovative windows feature impeccable aesthetics and functionality. From the outside, the combined Galeria and proSky windows look identical, which makes them perfectly harmonise with each other visually. Inside, large balcony windows increase the operational space by their conversion into a balcony.
Advantages provided by proSky windows allow the user to admire the surroundings as the increased axis of rotation enables even a tall person to walk up easily to the window edge.
At first glance, one can see that the Galeria and Duet proSky are top quality products. This is also confirmed by selected materials of the highest quality used in their production and excellent specification of these windows.
Balcony windows are practical and beautiful. When closing the lower sash, the balcony rails are hidden inside the window and are not visible above the roof’s surface. As a result, they are not only protected against damage or dirt accumulation, but also do not spoil the aesthetics of the roof.
The large glazed area, ease of use or excellent workmanship – these are only a few of numerous advantages incorporated into Galeria balcony windows from FAKRO.
They offer an ideal alternative to traditional balconies, which are an additional floor area that some of us enter only for cleaning purposes. Balcony windows completely eliminate this problem, and at the same time they simply look wonderful.
