Application of the Lightsolve methodology for the pre-design of the new Belgian VELUX headquarters

Through the example of the VELUXBelgium building, this paper presents a real case application of a new methodology that is being developed to favor an interactive and intuitive approach of daylighting in buildings in the schematic design phase. The Lightsolve method, under development, is based on an interactive goal-oriented approach, and provides visual representations of annual, climate-based data that rely on a combination of sky distributions using the ASRC-CIE model. This paper focuses on the use of graphical representation of climate-based daylight performance metrics (illuminance and glare metrics) combined with luminance renderings for evaluating the design options occurring during the pre-design stage of the building.
