This smart skylight window is the first to offer built in, tunable lighting that mimics the ideal color temperature of natural light to provide the right light at the right time.

Enjoy the right light at the right moment with tunable lighting

Research has shown that natural light improves people’s sense of well-being. Awaken is the first and only skylight to offer supplemental, tunable lighting. The energy efficient, LED lighting can be adjusted to the ideal color temperature of natural light—supporting circadian rhythm, easing transitions from day to night, and helping people feel better at home no matter where they live, what time of year it is, or which direction their house faces.

Marvin Awaken vented skylight that opens on all sides

Breathe new energy into your space with smart-sensor skylight venting

It’s easy to refresh any space with Awaken’s first-of-its-kind venting system. Awaken opens on all four sides, filling your home with fresh air faster than traditional hinged units. It’s equipped with smart sensors that automatically shut the unit if rain is detected, and the indoor air quality sensors will send you an alert when changes in VOCs are detected. So, take a deep breath and enjoy the energizing feeling that a home filled with fresh air can provide.

Bring the outdoors in

Views of the outside world give us a calming sense of place, which is why Awaken’s features have been thoughtfully integrated into the frame. Its durable fiberglass structure has been designed with narrow sight lines, creating more space for sky views. Awaken’s patent-pending screen only surrounds the perimeter of the unit instead of obscuring the glass, leaving nothing between you and the view.

Design Flexibility

Fulfill your design vision with a wide range of sizes, including the biggest operational units on the market. And thanks to Awaken’s low, sleek profile, even the largest sizes will not dominate a roofline. The thoughtful lighting and shading options allow you to create an atmosphere to fit the needs of any room. Plus Awaken colors match other Marvin windows and doors for a seamless pairing across all product lines.

Control it the way you want

Easily control the ventilation, lighting, and shading of your connected skylight with a user-friendly app, wall switches, or smart home systems like Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Samsung SmartThings.

Design Options

  • Exterior Finish

    Exterior Fiberglass Finish

    Built for durability and low maintenance, our Ultrex® coatings are three times thicker than competitive finishes. These protective coatings have a smooth consistency, and even the darkest colors resist fading, chalking, peeling, and cracking.

    The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) awards certifications to materials that pass numerous, rigorous tests. These tests simulate the harsh conditions that a finish will encounter throughout the life of the window or door. Passing these specification tests and achieving AAMA 624 verification gives independent confirmation that the Ultrex finish is best in class among fiberglass products.

  • Interior Finish

    Interior Fiberglass Finish

    The Ultrex® pultruded fiberglass interior features a durable, low-maintenance finish in Stone White.

  • Mounting Options

    Each Awaken unit is shipped with the hardware necessary for installation on a curb or directly to the decking. The appropriate flashing kit for your installation choice is selected at the time of ordering.
  • Glass
    Awaken skylights are equipped with dual layers of glazing. For your protection, the exterior glass (outboard) is tempered, which increases its strength and ability to withstand impacts. The indoor layer (inboard) is laminated, which means the glass will hold together in the event of severe impact.

    Awaken’s glass is also treated in Low E3 coatings. These microscopically thin, essentially invisible coatings on the glass surface help manage the amount of heat radiation that passes through a window pane or reflected away from it, reducing a home’s dependence on heat and air conditioning.
  • Screens
    Clear views of the outside world give us a sense of place and calm, which is why we designed Awaken’s patent-pending screen into the frame. As the unit projects outward, the screen shields the side openings from insects and debris. No part of Awaken’s glass is ever covered by a screen. The result is an expansive and unobscured view of the sky.
  • Shades
    Both the room-darkening and light-filtering optional shades are fully integrated and exclusively designed for Awaken skylights. They are built with durable, UV-resistant fabric and are protected by a 5-year warranty. Easily control your shading with a user-friendly app, wall switches, or smart home systems like Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Samsung SmartThings.
  • Fixed Skylight
    If venting is not part of your design vision, consider a non-venting, or fixed Awaken. Tunable lighting, VOC sensors, integrated shades, and smart home features are all available on a fixed unit, and the exterior profiles are the same as a venting Awaken. This allows you to combine both types and maintain visual continuity on the roof lines.

Designed with people at the center

For forward-thinking architects, interior designers, homeowners, and builders, Marvin Awaken and Marvin Skycove® create a space for air, light, view, and comfort.

"It's a fabulous concept! Light is the differentiator!"



“Skylights are an afterthought. Awaken is an architectural gesture.”



“If lights are integrated into the frame, it takes away the need for a custom solution.”
