DAYLIGHT DESIGN STRATEGIES
Daylight design strategies, focusing on transition and differentiation and the components of daylight.The strategy as a response to the needs and functions of the building.
The location of windows greatly affects daylight distribution. Rooms within a deep plan that share similar functions can utilize for higher openings to more evenly distribute daylight. In contrast, a deeper plan will benefit from both an increase in area and height in openings.
We analyse the climate regarding the four forms of daylight for each façade - including the roof:
1. Direct sun
2. Indirect sun due to reflection from other buildings
3. Direct cloudy sky and
4. Indirect cloudy sky, which is reflected on the ground
