Daylighting and view

Daylighting covers 50% of all spaces occupied for critical visual tasks. When you're sitting in the library, pay attention to the Koret Atrium, a spacious atrium that was created for natural light in the library. By having various windows in the library along with this atrium, more natural light is reflected around the building.
