Context of the situation
The lack of natural light is felt in Jerome’s home, he owns an apartment on the second floor of a narrow street in the Barrio Gotico of Barcelona.
The dark living room is lit by two large French windows that open onto the balcony. It’s a very pleasant and friendly space for Jerome and his partner, who really enjoy their home and the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. However, the light is dimmed by the narrowness of the street and the living room remains dark all day long.
Jerome would like to be able to light his dark living room more intensely without turning on the light. He would be delighted to catch the sun rays that penetrate the street in the evening at the time of the tapas.
Looking for a solution
Although he lives in the most historic district of Barcelona, Jerome is also inclined to innovation. He searches a lot of things on the Internet, he finally discovered Espaciel thanks to the company’s Facebook page
Jerome’s home has two balconies exposed to natural light from the sky and sometimes to the sun. The balcony reflector is the ideal solution to bring more light and sunshine into this apartment on a narrow street. This model can be installed quickly and easily, without any work!
In this balcony configuration, the Espaciel Reflector can be tilted up and down to let in ambient light and tilted left to right to catch the sun’s rays. No more dark living room!
The installed Balcony Reflectors provide a daily source of light that transforms the dark living room into a pleasant place to live for Jerome and his partner.
For a large part of the day, natural light takes over from electric lighting, which remains on for less time. This is a real plus for the couple’s well-being.
Satisfied with the result, Jérôme and his girlfriend recommend Espaciel and its Light Reflectors to their friends and family in Barcelona. Moreover, Jérôme is delighted to invite his friends to share tapas in his apartment, so well located in the old city and now so bright.
