In today's world, one of the most important factors is energy saving. The proper use of daylight is one of the most important ways of it. The aim of this thesis is to study the effects of daylight in the atrium well and in the spaces adjacent to the atrium. The relative contributions to the illumination levels in the side spaces due to changes in the reflectivity of the floor materials and the glazing material, or both, for enhancing the illumination will be determined. For the study, a square type of atrium (four sided atrium) has been chosen, and during the study, a physical scale model has been used, for the analysis of the light distribution within the atrium.
