It reminds us, that all living creatures are dependent on light. Skylight consists of 5 large “slices of light”, which shows a sky on both sides. In a subtle way Skylight imitates the variability of the sky during day and year. And with beautifull colour graduations it imitates the changes of daylight on the heaven.
Krogh’s starting point is often her assessment of the natural light illuminating the space she’ll
work in, which she examines to gauge its intensity, color spectrum and the shadows that form as it moves. Krogh balances these factors against the practicalities outlined in the project brief, then brings them together to charge the space with energy and emotion, which makes the architecture

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
