We have all “seen” beautiful daylight effects, whether as a romantic sunset on the shore, or a line of light falling inside a pyramid in Egypt, natural light is in a way like our best friend. Especially after a week of grey skies and lots of rain.
All of us immediately assimilate natural light with our eyes as the instrument to transfer all the natural light into our brain. But also our skin has this same ability to transmit the effect of natural light, plus we can feel the effect of a warm day on the objects around us that have captured its warming energy.
As architect and lighting designers we have been attracted to master daylighting into our scope of work. Architectural practices will understand this discipline in a way how to orient the building, how to maximise the benefit of natural light. In our studio we feel more for the “dosage” of natural light, to filter it to the exact level in order to cope with the function of the project as a museum, a retail area or most of all in offices where the wellbeing of natural light is stimulating our brain and make us all to work in a more happy way, leading to better performances.
