Simulating the natural lighting for physical and mental Well-being in residential building in Dubai, UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is well aware of energy consumption and the reduction in carbon emissions from the quantitative analysis for lighting, but well-being, does not have a well-defined characteristic. This study will serve as fundamental data to enhance the housing interiors in the UAE. Additionally, it will serve future research that supplies an efficient guide for the decision-making process to prepare the design guidelines and operational plans.

Accordingly, trends, innovation, and national efforts serve as the backdrop for this study, which aims to present new strategic lighting layouts (lighting scenes) standards related to light in residential spaces for a healthy life in Dubai, UAE, by presenting and simulating natural lighting diversity throughout the day to adapt with the circadian rhythm for physical and mental well-being.
