As the main facade of the ecoBiblioteca is facing north, no natural light is available directly.  In a project that  limits the use of articial lighting, this problem has become an opportunity to figure out an intelligent solution.

The design team chose Velux innovative Sun Tunnel. The product was chosen for its ability to bring light through the void in the attic into the interior space, on the north-facing facade of the building.

One sun tunnel brings daylight into the toilet area (which has no window) and the other into the library lobby.

For the lobby Velux supplied the suntunnel with the Lovegrove accessory, a device which allows to dimm the daylight.

 The use of suntunnels  will avoid the use of electric lighting during the day, as they will create a sufficient illuminance level  for toilets and entrance area.
