Sunlight provision: a model for evaluation

This paper explores how to evaluate sunlight provision in buildings across Europe and presents basic rules for the design of insulated buildings. It covers how buildings are designed according to minimum illuminance requirements to achieve acceptable visual conditions, however, circadian rhythm studies have reported the importance of higher illuminance levels to stimulate human activities and the proper functions of the body's organs. The study also looks into workplaces when protection against excessive sunlight causing glare and overheating has to be controlled by sun devices.
