Right to light


To promote exposure to daylight and views of varying distances by limiting the distance workstations can be from a window or atrium.

Atriums and skylights do not qualify for Feature 61 Part 1, as the feature is focused on views.

No, since they are not view windows.

Each individual apartment must meet Feature 61 requirements. Every room in the apartment does not need to meet the requirements, but all regularly occupied space, which in multifamily family projects includes bedrooms, living rooms, dinning rooms, work rooms and kitchens, in the aggregate must meet the requirements as written.

The project should calculate the percentage of the office that is within 7.5 m (25 ft) of any exterior wall with a view window. The occupants direct line of sight does not need to be considered when calculating.
