The design team’s first instinct was to modify the architecture to minimize direct sun into the space, while maintaining some clear glazing to allow for views to the sky. This solution minimized illuminance levels considerably over the year; however, as shown in the Daylight autonomy calculation on the upper left of the left image below, some of the year maintains illuminance levels over the criteria threshold of 500lux.
