Sunlighthouse is a VELUX Model Home 2020 residential building in Austria. The main objective of the Model Home 2020 initiative is to create environmentally-friendly low-energy buildings with a strong focus on the health and well-being of their occupants. A key factor for achieving this is to provide the interiors with generous levels of natural light. Daylight performance analyses were actively used during the design process of Sunlighthouse and following are the final results from the evaluation in Daylight Visualizer.
