In this video I discuss natural daylighting strategies anyone can take advantage of. I begin with a short history lesson which describes how daylighting actually shaped the largest of cities in the US.

In 1915 the 38-story Equitable Building in New York City was the largest office building in the world. Containing 1.2 million square feet of office space, it consumed nearly every available square foot of its diminutive lot and cast an equally large shadow on its neighborhood in lower Manhattan. Its construction inspired the enactment of the city’s 1916 Zoning Resolution, which was designed to preserve access to light and air at the street level. The resolution prescribed specific limitations for a building’s envelope — its outer walls — and would go on to shape the stepped forms that you see today on many of the iconic towers in the city.

This underscores the importance that access to daylight had in shaping even the largest of cities, the individual buildings that make up those cities and, more broadly, sensible building design. With an increasing focus on sustainable design practices, the smart use of natural daylight in our homes is no longer a luxury — it has become a necessity. At the heart of any good daylighting strategy is a concept of “borrowed” light: the capture of light falling on the exterior of a home and transporting it to the spaces where it’s needed.

    Great video, would a sun tunnel be a good way to borrow light? a sklight is getting a bit too expensive

  2. PRUDENCE IAS says:

    Much appreciated video. Can you do one specifically focusing on bathroom natural lighting, translucency in windows etc.? Also some ideas for school/institute type of places. Regards.

  3. DEER Design says:

    We learn a lot from this, it is really hard to know all the above information in short time.
    Thank you very much for your useful sharing!

  4. Gomathi B says:

    Instead of Bar Room Study Room is very useful.

  5. shahilagh says:

    You could have summarised the points under the video …. some of your audience needs that

    Great video on daylighting. To add: skylights bring more than twice as much light as vertical windows and for more hours per day. Therefore you can eliminate vertical windows in some spaces, move that glazing to the roof and reduce it by 50% in size and still achieve fantastic daylight while reducing glazing on the building envelope…..improved energy efficiency and improved daylight from above. Win Win. Even better in bathrooms where privacy is always a challenge.

  7. we even believe " YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT WONDERFUL EFFECTS LIGHT CAN CREATE UNTIL A SPACE IS DESIGNED"

  8. Soo awesome!! I luv luv luv natural light in home! Thank uuuuuuuuuu!!

    Ok I'm sorry!! Yes!! Architects are interior designers and engineer artists!!

  9. So glass could be used in between cabinets or next to cabinets instead of opening up kitchen walls? That would be great for keeping cabinet space.
