Views out of windows have traditionally been considered “nice to have”, but not crucial for human health and well-being. Even windows themselves are sometimes deemed unnecessary. However, evidence is mounting that quality views are essential for not only increased occupant comfort, satisfaction, and productivity, but long-term health.
Lisa Heschong will address some of the following questions: Are there additional benefits of daylighting and quality views for interior spaces? How important is this exposure, for sleep quality, metabolic health, eye health and development, disorientation, depression, anxiety, and pain management? . She will also touch upon the role of view and daylight in early childhood development and end of life care, as well as the intersection of daylight and view with other current design concerns, such as equity, sustainability, climate changes and more!
