Manipulate your daylightDaylight comes into many of the examples illustrated here in various ways, but it deserves a section to itself as it is so important. Daylight is the most wonderful magnifier of interior space, but when it is used in blanket form rather insensitively it can lose its magic. Here, a slot of daylight separates the original back wall of this house from the solid roof of the extension, making the whole construction feel more lightweight and delicate, as well as bringing daylight in to what would otherwise be a dark zone within the house.Highlighting specific areas, such as washing daylight down over a stairwell from above or creating a ‘pool’ of daylight over a dining table or kitchen island, can be tremendously effective.

Additions to existing structures often compromise the amount of daylight the original building receives. Not here, though. The skylight ensures that the existing home borrows daylight at its perimeter.
