We often get asked to create a feeling of “daylight” in a dark and dingy room, but what exactly is “daylight” and how can you design it into your project?
People love and have evolved under daylight; depending on your location on earth we all have a slightly different experience with daylight and a different expectation. Natural daylight changes in intensity, direction and colour temperature over the course of days and seasons. Daylight can also come in the form of a warm, bright direct sun, or a diffused cold, cloudy sky.
If you are trying to create a real feeling of natural light inside a room it is important to balance all the different characteristics of natural light, allowing for some dynamic changes in the way light behaves with a space by utilising both accent light (direct sun) and diffused light (cloudy day).
