Analysis of daylighting in heritage interiors
Since 2012, CBL has been collaborating with Prof John Mardaljevic of Loughborough University on a programme of research for the National Trust. This has involved monitoring daylight in several houses using data loggers and a novel system of HDR capture as well as simulation using climate based daylight modelling. The latter is being developed as a tool to assist with daylight management for interiors with light sensitive contents and finishes.
