Fig.â€‚102.â€‚Detailing the Windows [Bejder, 2015]
After formulating the concept of the central core for circulation and capture of light, model studies have been made in order to assess the potential of different geometrical compositions as seen in Fig.102. The resolution of this study has been that in order to utilize the use of indirect natural light through reflectance on the atrium walls, the walls need to be directed outwards towards the facade. This is a result of the low sun angle typical for the Arctic climate. Nonetheless, efficient lighting design is also given by small details such as the window frame as seen in the diagram placed aside [Bejder, 2015].
