Natural light study
We help you designing the best enlightened property
Our technical team supports you to optimize your properties' natural light while taking into account your constraints
After analysis of the plans of the operation, we offer various options to improve the natural light and sunshine of your properties. We suggest modification about the size and location of the openings, the arrangement of the rooms or the color of the coatings used.

With our help, you can increase the natural light of your properties by 9%.

Solen support during the design

On average, our customers increase natural light of their properties by 9% and their final prices by 0,5%
Reception of your plans
Reception of your plans
We receive your project plans during the best timing of the design phase. We also take advantage of this exchange to consider all requirements and expectations. We work with standard files (DWG, BIM).
Mandatory files:
Scale plan
Front plan
Floor plan with property nomenclature
Block plan
Calculations and analysis
Calculations and analysis
Our engineers model the building and its environment to simulate natural light and sunshine for each room and each day of the year.

Items taken into account for calculations:
Surrounding buildings and vegetation
Historical weather data
Room surface
Close masks
GPS location
Size, orientation and vis-a-vis windows
Meeting and proposal for plans' alterations
Meeting and proposal for plans' alterations
During the second meeting, we present our first audit and choose together all properties that need to be enhanced in terms of natural light and sunshine.
Then, we will suggest modifications of your plans considering your technical and regulatory constraints, without increasing your budget. With the proposed changes, we improve the natural light of the properties from 9 to 10%. By linking the price of your properties with their natural light, we can increase your turnover from +0.2 to 0.5%.
Suggestions for changes:
  • Size of the openings
  • Position of the openings
  • Room layout
  • Position of the balconies
  • ...
Example 1
Suggested variant:
Invert the windows of the bedroom and living room (width of 180cm in the living room and width of 90 cm in the living room)
The living room gains 1:30 of natural light on average over the year and the price of the apartment increases by 0.6%
Example 2
1st suggested variant:
Remove the winter garden
Gain of 5:00 average natural light per day in the living room
2nd suggested variant:
Put simple glazing on the winter garden and leave the double glazing on the heated spaces
Increase of 8% of the natural light of the living room
3th suggested variant:
Enlarge the windows overlooking the winter garden
Increase of 19% of the natural light of the living room
Study of the impact of modification on natural light of properties
Study of the impact of modification on natural light of properties
We study the options validated together during the meeting and calculate their impact on the natural light and sunshine of each property.
