natural light is one of the most important elements of
home design because daylight dramatically affects our perceptions
of size and color. While the light bulb is a wonderful
thing, electric lighting cannot offer even illumination
throughout a room and different light bulbs produce very
different hues which change the appearance of your home.
We are drawn to natural light. Public areas in your home
bathed in sunlight are perceived to be “welcoming” and “cheery”,
private spaces “ safe” and “serene”.
Being a yoga enthusiast, I whole-heartedly agree—daylight
just makes us feel good! Sunlight’s health benefits
are well documented: from Vitamin D production, lower blood
pressure, and improved calcium absorption; to improved
concentration, reduced irritability and headaches.
Our lifestyles have become increasingly sedentary and
with the rise of the digital age, we spend many hours
Clearly, our environment greatly impacts our well being
and quality of life. As we age, our eyes’ lenses
yellow and harden, less light gets through and rooms appear
darker, hindering the room’s vitality and piercing
your spirit. If you are tired, sluggish, depressed and
simply unsatisfied with your home, perhaps it’s due
to a lack of natural light.
One home design solution has been to increase the number
and size of windows in our homes. Of course, the direction
these windows face and shading from other structures, trees
and window coverings can reduce light passing through windows.
Skylights mostly avoid such shading and due to their roof
placement and angled orientation to the sun, the same size
skylight passes about three times as much light as an identically-sized
Which is why we’re excited about
publishing this special collection of home plans which
