This naked glass facade once housed a tree growing up through the floor but when the tree was removed the space was unusable due to heat gain and glare. Indoor Sky was asked to develop a solution that would allow control of both temperature and daylight and allow the space to be used as a corporate boardroom.
The solution features (54) motorized fabric lightshelves operating in (3) separate zones and a fixed canopy at the apex facilitating full control of the changing daylight conditions throughout the day.
"The functionality is amazing; first of all glare but we had a heat issue and trouble cooling the space. Now some people feel that it's too cool!"
Dick Grafmyre, CEO JSSB
Daylight impacts human health and performance by kick-starting the body's circadian system, affecting mood and perception, and by enabling critical chemical reactions in the body.
Patients in rooms with good daylight require up to 25% shorter stays and 25% less medication.
Further benefits include lessening agitation among dementia patients.
Dayliter Shading Systems allow for full control and delivery of glare-free daylight while helping reduce energy consumption.
Indoor Sky is dedicated to developing products to optimize both occupant comfort and energy performance through daylight harvesting in markets such as education, healthcare, retail and commercial office.
Unlike conventional interior shading systems, the Dayliter Shade provides ideal interior daylight levels while minimizing glare and solar heat gain. Featuring fabric lightshelf assemblies with integrated roller shades, the Dayliter Shade overcomes the shortcomings associated with conventional lightshelves while maintaining their energy reduction benefits.
Shades may be manually operated or fully automated.
The 22 foot high open beam ceiling in this refurbished studio, complete with diffused skylight, demanded a window treatment that could anchor the space aesthetically.
Each large window showcases a Dayliter Shade with triple, operable lightshelf to take advantage of the ever changing daylight. The southern tree lined facade creates shadows that play on the shades in the breeze. “We love these shades and so does everyone who comes in here,” expounded Paul Hutton managing partner.
Designed to create glare-free spaces, the interior daylighting & shading system from Indoor Sky
totally transforms this office at Williamsport Regional Medical Center.
The system, featuring operable fabric lightshelves and integral roller shade, delivers superb light
quality by distributing diffused daylight evenly within the space.
