Tuesday July 13th at 12PM | Illuminating our Experiences with Human-Centric Lighting (In Partnership with Lutron)
To understand human-centric lighting, we first need to understand how lighting can impact the livability of an office, retail space, or other commercial building. In this commercial design webinar, we’ll define the four elements that make up human-centric lighting and explore design best practices for HCL and how to communicate these benefits to clients. We’ll also specify where HCL can be used in various space types to improve the human experience and overall satisfaction with the space. Finally, we’ll examine key design considerations and smart technologies that enable HCL.
