Daylighting design needs to consider orientation and building site characteristics, facade and roof characteristics, size and placement of window openings, glazing and shading systems, and geometry and. Several ISO working groups include daylight as an element in their work groups. At present, one standard (ISO, a) applies to calculations methods for daylight in both existing buildings and the design of new and renovated buildings.

Providing daylight in a building does not by itself lead to energy efficiency. Even a well daylit building has a high level of lighting energy use if the lighting controls are inappropriate.

Light-switching behaviour (BRE) indicated potential energy savings averaging 20" to 40" in offices and factories if daylighting is used : Nick Baker, Koen Steemers. To complement the critical and objective view gleaned from the study of some sixty buildings, this design manual has been developed to provide a more synthetic approach to the principles which lie behind successful daylight design.

Buy Daylight Design of Buildings (): NHBS - Nick Baker and Koen Steemers, James and James Science Publishers. This book highlights 14 buildings that were chosen because each illustrates a particularly innovative concept or approach for bringing daylight into buildings.

Our intention is to inspire designers and building users alike to raise the level of their expectations about what a daylit space is and to provide instruction on how to improve daylight.

For example, statements such as this in design guidelines were fairly typical: ‘maximising the use of daylight in order to improve student performance is an absolute imperative'.
