    Natural light is a great thing, not a design flaw. I’d say it’s a very sharp design. The Connor Group has a great building for the future.

    Dave, you are correct that natural light is great, with one little caveat…too much of it is a bad thing in buildings where people expect temperatures to remain constantly within the range for human comfort.

    I do think it’s a decent design for the area, but the R-2 glazing and high potential for glare suggest the area of glazing could be brought down a bit while still achieving a strong design move, optimal light levels, lower cost, and better energy performance.
