See the Light: Make sure users can see where they are going at all times of day. Harness natural light – it makes spaces friendlier
Opening indoor spaces up to the outdoors can help people to navigate the building. Natural ambient light evenly illuminates features, and landmarks through the windows become points of reference.
This space is flooded with natural light by using generous amounts of glazing.
Natural light isn’t just for those along the edge of the building. Skylights and windows can be used to light the building core, and areas of vertical circulation – which, in turn, can funnel natural light throughout the space.
A balance between natural and artificial light can help to create a friendly space.
