Window View Quality: Why It Matters and What We Should Do
Window views have been shown to have positive effects on occupants’ health, well-being, and productivity. However, we lack consensus on a unified definition for window view quality and assessment methods. In response, we defined window view quality as the quality of the visual connection to the outdoors that satisfies building occupants, and its primary components: content, access, and clarity. We also identified research needs in a position statement signed by 55 experts, including Lam Partners’ Dan Weissman.
