Rethinking Skylights—How Modern Innovation Can Help You Design the Right Space for Your Clients
As an architect, you are challenged with creating spaces that are as visually appealing as they are functional. This task can often seem insurmountable, because you are bringing together too many conflicting components. From space restrictions to code and safety requirements, budgets to system integration, you must balance your aesthetic vision with the logistics of creating a usable space. It is not just about how the finished building will look; it is about how it will work both today and years in the future.
Along with these challenges, you also know that the future of architecture must incorporate environmental initiatives and energy efficiency. One of the easiest ways to achieve this goal is to incorporate advanced skylights into your design, and to rethink how these features go far beyond their traditional role as design elements. When you add in energy code compliant skylights, your building project transforms in both the way it looks and how well it will function. However, as you consider adding skylights to your project plans, you may need to help your clients understand the value that they bring:
First, skylights allow your clients to utilize the ultimate source of free, abundant energy: daylight. A skylight lets your clients reduce indoor lighting usage, which can save thousands of dollars in utility bills per year.
Next, help dispel any misconceptions that your clients may have regarding skylights, like glare or heating issues. Low solar heat skylights and UV blocking skylights ensure that they will experience a beautiful, well-lit space that is still insulated and safe.
