The availability of artificial light over the last two centuries and the restructuring of our working day means we are fast becoming the “Indoor Generation”, a generation of people whose experience of daylight and fresh air during the week can often be restricted to the morning commute to work or school, a quick lunch break or a stop at the supermarket on the way home.
The influence that architecture has on our lives cannot be understated, and the need to create healthier, brighter indoor spaces with greater access to daylight and to the outdoors is a pressing one.
Our guide to incorporating daylight into building design covers:
- The emergence of the indoor generation and our daylighting needs
- The impact of daylight design in commercial buildings
- Daylighting in buildings and the importance of EN 17037
- Designing for daylight in offices, hotels and conference centres, public concourses, industrial, warehousing and multi-use commercial spaces
