Light exposure benefits and education
There have been many studies on the positive affects light exposure has on a person’s health and wellbeing. 80 Ann Street has been designed with access to light as a priority, including a side core configuration which enables over 80% of the floorplate (levels 2 – 31) to be within 12M of a nature light source. The building also features an integrated communication network which links back to the on floor blind controls. In addition to these design features, 80 Ann provides educational resources on circadian rhythm, sleep hygiene, age-related increases in light requirements including the importance of daylight exposure on circadian and mental health.
