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. Always around us, 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 natural light into our brain. But also our skin has this same ability to transmit the effect of natural light where we can feel the effect of a warm day on the objects around us that have captured its warming energy.
As architects and lighting designers we have been attracted to mastering the possibilities of day lighting into our scope of work. Architectural practices will understand this discipline in the way we orient a building in order to maximise the benefit of natural light. In our Studio we feel more for the tuning and “dosage” of natural light, to filter light to the exact level in order to concentrate to the function of the project. We endeavor to manage this dosage based on the building program such as a museum, a retail area or most of all in offices where the wellbeing of natural light is stimulates our brain to make us all work in a more gratifying way, leading to better performance.
