Do you want to show your work in the best possible light? A growing body of science supports the many benefits of daylighting, while the energy savings are irrefutable. But indiscriminate daylighting can cause glare, discomfort, and overheating. The trick is to find a balanced approach. This seminar will show you dozens of innovative, state of the art projects that feature natural illumination done well, including many from past NKBA Design Award winners.

Learning Objectives:
Learn daylighting techniques to increase homeowner comfort, safety, and satisfaction. Discuss how to design spaces that have lower energy costs by utilizing free solar radiation. Describe daylighting possibilities that are most suited to specific projects and budgets.
