Daylight has been used for centuries as the main source of light in the interior and has always been an implicit part of architecture since the buildings existed. Not only does it replace electrical lighting during the day, reducing electric power consumption, but it also affects heating and cooling, making it an important parameter in energy efficient design. Research has shown that daylight is a great asset to health and comfort, so it is crucial for building occupants. Daylighting of the interior spaces of buildings and their functionally defined parts is proposed according to visual activities. The minimum values for daylight factor are set for individual visual activities. This article deals with factors influencing the value of the daylight factor.
