Climate-responsive daylight system design for primary schools in Türkiye

Passive systems are currently the preferred method in architectural design for enhancing energy efficiency in buildings. Utilizing daylight as the primary light source in buildings meets the visual, psychological, and physiological needs of users while avoiding the negative effects of direct sunlight. Therefore, passive systems are widely favored in architectural design to promote energy efficiency. It is essential to use natural lighting as a passive system to reduce a building's energy needs for lighting. Additionally, it creates an appealing visual atmosphere while maintaining comfort requirements.
The daylight criteria for providing sufficient daylight in educational buildings were evaluated in this study related to the TS EN 17037+A1 standard. The study aimed to establish an optimal approach for determining direction, obstruction, and façade design parameters that will ensure sufficient daylight in primary school classrooms in different climatic regions of Türkiye. The study's main focus was to develop a framework for classroom design in educational buildings that takes into account the provision of adequate daylight while avoiding discomfort glare.
"The Minimum Design Guide for Educational Buildings" is a guidebook for constructing educational buildings in Türkiye. However, it lacks detailed specifications for dynamic variables of the environment and interior components. To address this issue, the guide should be improved according to the latest standard of TS-EN 17037-A1, which provides guidelines for daylight design in buildings.

Keywords: Climate responsive design, daylight performance, primary school classrooms, TS EN 17037+A1, window design.
