Designing with Daylighting

Simply adding a window is not enough. Multi-functional spaces require lighting options.

Design Challenges & Solutions

There are challenges and considerations when designing a space using daylighting. One such challenge is that of a dropped- or suspended-ceiling application. A lighting designer must consider:

  • Where the daylighting zones are located within the spac
  • Where to place the daylight sensor
  • Building orientation and obstruction
  • Commissioning of the controls to optimize and maintain light levels
  • Clutter from requiring both a skylight and luminaire (commercial indoor space)
  • How to manage color uniformity between the natural and electric lighting (if requested)

Sunoptics helps overcome these and other design challenges and provides numerous benefits for both designers and end-users.
