LIGHT STUDY

Level A - 64% of useable floor area Level B - 36% of useable floor area

high density

——

typical mid-rise plan A natural light penetration study was undertaken in a typical mid-rise floorplate of Australia Square Tower. A common way to do this is by using the 6-metre zone Depth of Space approach to defining high quality space with abundant natural daylight. For every 6 metres away from a natural light source, the building floorplate is divided into differing classifications. Level A (0 to 6m) and B (6 to 12m) classification are areas suitable for open plan office accommodation as they are within 12 metres of natural daylight and views.

Level C (12 to 18m) classification and below should be dedicated to rooms of intermittent use such as meeting rooms, store rooms and rooms where natural light would be detrimental to their function. This diagram shows that 100% of the useable floor area is appropriate for Level A and B office accommodation.
