New Website from LRC: Lighting Patterns for Healthy Buildings

To assist lighting designers and specifiers in selecting quality lighting that supports healthy living. Lighting affects peoples’ visual, circadian, and perceptual systems. A 24-hour lighting scheme, first proposed by Mariana Figueiro in 2008 for older adults, augments lighting design by including high circadian stimulation during the daytime, low circadian stimulation in the evening, good lighting for visibility, and nightlights with horizontal and vertical cues to improve postural stability. Applying the results of circadian stimulus (CS) research, this website presents a portfolio of lighting patterns for various building types. Each pattern presents lighting plans, renderings, and generic luminaire information useful for providing healthy lighting throughout the day. http://lightingpatternsforhealthybuildings.org/
