Master daylighting design

Daylight shapes the experience of a space like no other material and is a fundamental aspect for realising healthy and sustainable buildings. Good daylighting design can improve the health, mood, cognitive abilities and productivity of the occupants at home, school or work while reducing the energy consumption of the building.

VELUX Daylight Visualizer makes it easy to make informed decisions about daylighting strategies in small and large projects. The high-fidelity daylight simulations are ideal for evaluating compliance with the European Standard for Daylight in Buildings EN 17037 and are fully compatible with your preferred BIM/CAD software.

Design brighter

Explore and optimise daylight conditions in any space with photorealistic visualisations and false-colour mapping for standard and complex fenestration systems.

  • Visualise luminance, illuminance and daylight factor levels.
  • Explore daylight conditions with plan views, section views and perspective renderings. 
  • Simulate sunlight redirection with light pipes, blinds and light shelves.
  • Simulate complex fenestration systems (CFS) and shading products with BSDF materials.
