Daylighting Pattern Guide

20 unique daylight patterns described

The Daylighting Pattern Guide illustrates how to create successful daylighting designs and presents information in a visual manner for designers as well as those with limited background in lighting design. Developed as an online tool by New Buildings Institute, it provides detailed case studies for a wide range of spatial scales and uses. Project types include offices, schools, libraries, laboratories, museums, industrial facilities, and recreational facilities and represent a diversity of regional climates. Designers and owners alike can easily see the changes in daylight distribution as alternative design variables are tested in order to quickly identify proven strategies during early design stages without needing to conduct complex simulations for each new design.
