- All habitable rooms (bedrooms and living areas) have direct daylight access.
- Daylight is provided wherever possible in all other areas to provide a better quality interior environment for occupants and minimise the need for artificial light during daylight hours
Daylight consists of skylight (diffuse light from the sky) and sunlight (direct beam radiation from the sun). These change with the time of day, season, and weather conditions. This variability contributes to pleasant living environments, as does having overall daylighting that is adequate without overheating. Daylight is important for human health and reduces reliance on artificial light, improving energy efficiency and residential amenity.
