Daylighting guidance

Seventhwave office, Madison, Wisconsin

Good daylighting creates beautiful, appropriately lit spaces while saving energy.

Success comes from a combination of art and science, architecture and engineering. Rather than relying solely on electric lighting during the day, daylighting brings indirect natural light into the building. Daylighting reduces the need for electric lighting and connects people to the outdoors. And it provides pleasing illumination at a fraction of the cost of the most efficient electric lights.
