DAYLIGHTING

As well as the energy saving benefits of using of natural light in buildings, high quality daylighting can be a vital component in the creation of enriching and vibrant spaces. At TEDS we employ an integrated design approach to daylighting which informs decisions on form, siting, climate, building components, and lighting design criteria.
