This paper describes the approach taken within the EC’s Daylight-Europe project to apply combined thermal/daylight simulations to existing building designs which are representative of European types and climate contexts. The outputs from the performance appraisals are then incorporated within design guidelines for daylighting best practice. The paper elaborates a multi-criteria appraisal set which is used to assess the overall performance of a building and compare this with a matched reference case formed by removing the special daylighting features.
