The exit to the roof terrace allows daylight to stream into the interior through the 4 square meter glass surface. The square shape of the skylight makes it possible, for the first time, to also use spiral and platform staircases underneath. Until now, access to the roof was limited to straight stairways due to the elongated rectangular shape of the roof exit, according to a press release. The concealed hydraulic drives silently swing the glass element up to 70 degrees in 45 seconds.
