Abstract [en]

“The influence of opening’s embrasure and view on the perception of an interior space”

By different penetrations of natural light in a similar interior space, the perception of the room will be affected. Moreover, the nature of the view visible through the opening will engender distinct feelings regarding the same space. Three unique models composed of specific “direct-indirect” openings have been evaluated by sixteen observers throughout the months of April & May 2018, in Switzerland. Although the Daylight Factor* and the Illuminance* generate similar values in between the three Models, the room beneficial of a stronger daylight penetration and a more inclined embrasure* provokes a higher qualification of the space. In addition, the type of the view impacts the perception of the room. An even and flat view, in opposition to a natural background, has the tendency to generate undervaluations of the space in terms of General Impressions but also Spatial Brightness, Spatial Complexity and Spaciousness.

The following paper is divided in three parts: firstly a theoretical development regarding the natural light and the architecture, secondly the practical experiment and, finally, the discussion, which invites a dialogue between the first two sections.
