Taipei, Taiwan – Ideal co-working spaces provide users the ability to readily negotiate the way they choose to interact with the space. For Rain of Light, Yuan Architects used light as a tool to help workers navigate the ups and downs of their productivity. Occupants can easily move from areas bathed in pure, high-intensity daylight to spaces illuminated by indirect daylight.
The positive impact of natural light in the workspace has been well researched. According to a study titled Natural Light and Productivity: Analyzing the Impacts of Daylighting on Students’ and Workers’ Health and Alertness by N. Shishegar and M. Boubekri, its effects range from an improved mood, performance and sleep quality, to higher vitamin D retention and alertness.
