Like in Ando's minimalist architecture, sunlight and skylight should be treated just like any other architectural element. Indeed, governing natural light is essential for a sense of well being, control and balance with nature.

The two main categories of lighting are natural and artificial. Natural light comes from the sun or from combustion sources, such as fireplaces and candles. Daylight should be considered when designing your room, since there may be a need for window treatments such as blinds or drapes to control the light. Also, the soft light generated by candles and hearths will add a welcoming glow to living and dining rooms. info source: interiordesign.lovetoknow.com

Large windows that let in natural light make working or just relaxing far more enjoyable. Large windows let you look out at the beauty of nature and allow you to watch the world go by. Far from being distracting, they can allow you to have the lighting you need in order to do your work without ruining your eyes. Natural lighting can be one of the best light sources to work by. Large windows that let in lots of light will also allow you to achieve a better communication between exterior world and interior world. You feel more connected with your overall environment less isolated if you have adequate windows. Of course, natural light will also ensure that you get adequate of vitamin D, which is very important to your overall health. When you spend a lot of time in dark rooms, you look pasty and you don’t feel at your best. If you are busy and do not always get to spend plenty of time outdoors, you especially need to ensure that your windows let in as much natural sunlight as possible. info source: www.interiorandhealth.com

The benefits of having abundant daylight in our homes are well documented. Studies show that students learn better, adults suffer less seasonal affective disorder (S.A.D.), and older adults have less trouble moving around safely when rooms are filled with natural light. In addition to psychological and physical benefits, it is clear that living and working in naturally lit spaces generally makes us feel better.

Natural light comes into most homes through doors and windows. But if you want to add beauty, style and natural light into your home, while visually expanding rooms, consider additional daylight from skylights. info source: articles.directorym.co.uk
