Abstract: Deficiencies in daylighting performance (illuminance and uniformity) of educational facilities may cause health problems, work performance loss and excessive energy consumption. The varying nature of daylight in daily and yearly basis is a strong challenge on that matter. Advanced daylighting systems have been developed to overcome this challenge. Improving the daylighting performance of existing buildings is another difficulty in daylighting design. Daylighting design needs should be carefully considered at the initial design stages of the buildings. So, the aim of this study was to improve the illuminance and uniformity in four selected architectural design studios in Izmir. Measurements of daylight illuminance were conducted in May and June 2012. Simulation models were built in Ecotect/Radiance. To reach the best daylighting performance, simulations were carried out by Desktop Radiance with applying laser cut panels, prismatic panels and light shelves. It is considered that retrofitting efforts after the construction would be inadequate regarding daylighting, unless complying with the standards during the design process.
