Then, a house should be shaped and organized in response to the sun; all important spaces should receive abundant and balanced light.

Locate the building on the site so that it receives light throughout the day.

Plan location of rooms so that each receives daylight at the appropriate time each day

Windows allow views to the outside world establishing a sense of connection and orientation to time of day and season of the year.

Design building modules with minimal depth (25’) to allow daylight to reach space farthest from windows (12-15’).

Design with daylight on two sides of every room to provide more consistent and balanced illumination; objects and space will appear more three dimensional.

Use skylights and/or clerestory lighting to illuminate enclosed interior spaces.
