When was the last time you were inspired?
Inspiration can come from the most unlikely places. We are all constantly surrounded by creative design. Whether it’s via the route you take to work each day, the designs you review as a creative team or the places you head to outside of the office, there is never a lack of creative inspiration.
One of the best kept secrets in design is utilizing daylight in creative ways in our environments. Designing with daylight is becoming more popular and recognized as both a welcome functional and aesthetic addition to a wide variety of indoor spaces.
Design with Daylight
Daylight is an exceptional design material that can be incorporated in an overall beautiful and inspiring design. Just like brick or stone, wood or glass, you can incorporate natural light to define and enhance a space, draw focus to a specific room element or infuse emotion into an area.
Let’s explore a few inspiring applications of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs) around the world that delivered natural light into unique spaces to create visually appealing natural lighting to complement an overall design.
In this application, the architects wanted to create a striking and inviting entrance with an artistic flair so they created a magical entrance with custom daylighting pendants that celebrated the tubular form.
This church, “The Casa,” is a place of not only worship, but also a place for “Mind, Body, and Spirit.” Architects cleverly harvested daylight with minimal solar gain to help illuminate the baptismal font, which complements the beauty of the stained glass.
Lastly, let’s take a look at a meticulously created stunning pattern of TDDs. This celestial-inspired design floods the room with balanced natural light, providing circadian-rich daylight and beauty.
