Atelier Arranz Bravo

Barcelona, Spain 2012


The atelier of painter Eduardo Arranz-Bravo is located in Collserola Natural Park 🌲🌲🌲and receives light ☀ primarily from a large skylight.

artec3studio daylight analysis compared the impact of natural light working under a north-facing and south-facing skylight situations. The painter´s goal was to work with natural light as long as possible, so the study proved that a south-facing skylight was more appropriate due to the most profitable use of natural light in both summer and winter.

In addition, higher levels of light reflected from materials (luminance) would create less contrast and a greater feeling of environmental comfort.
