Architecture is the right balance of space and
Daylight is a central theme for Henning Larsen Architects. It
influences our senses and puts focus on life and the present
moment. Light emphasises the viewer's experience of being present
in the moment at this specific place. In this way, the building
becomes an instrument that reflects the daylight and allows the
architecture to provide a brilliant framework for people's
Wall surfaces capturing the light makes the
present much more intense for the people inside a building.
In addition to its obvious qualities for architecture, daylight
is one of the most important parameters for the energy consumption
of a building. A daylight optimised building directly influences
the energy consumption for cooling, ventilation, artificial
lighting and the heating bill. Thus, incorporating the use of
daylight in project processes has a number of positive effects.
