Natural light is essential for the visual comfort, well-being and health of a building’s occupants. Many studies show that we have a physiological and psychological need for natural light.

In addition, significant energy savings can be achieved by optimising natural lighting. In the tertiary sector, intelligent design of the building’s shell and artificial lighting systems can reduce energy consumption from lighting by 30 to 40%.

In addition, good natural lighting helps obtain 1 or 2 BREEAM credits.
