In the case of works of architecture located in high latitudes, the light plays a very different role compared to the consolidated situation in middle latitudes. The presence of diffuse light for long periods of the year and the different distribution of light radiation makes a radically different approach necessary: the primary requirement remains to convey the greatest amount of natural light as possible and spread it in depth, at the same time ensuring greater solar gains and thermal loads.
