INTERIOR SKYLIGHT STUDIES
Class: Human-Centric Environment
Team: Sam Freson, Andrew Lai
For the final research project of the Human-Centric Environment class, our team has conducted a study on skylights and comfort levels of different designs within the same room. Using my partner's studio project as the basis of the study, our team has created various scenarios involving the changing of skylight designs, climate conditions, and spatial use and collected results from 20 subjects who have experienced the scenarios through Virtual Reality simulations.
OFFICE WORK SCENARIOS
PRECISION WORK SCENARIOS
How do skylights of various apertures and climate conditions affect users' comfort level?
How do different functions of the same space influence the perception of comfort levels?
= Daylight conditions, Skylight design
= Comfort level, Productivity
= Incubator Unit Space
In this incubator unit during noon, people are more likely to be productive and enjoy working in an office environment under clear skies with skylights of greater apertures.
Office work displays an even scattering of seating choice, which may be a result of a strong range of contrasting images. Industrial work, on the other hand has shown a high number of female subjects preferring seatings in the central areas of the space
