Abstract

The amount of day lighting through internal layers of apartments of the city of Tehran has significantly decreased, which is because of lack of space and windows area. This lack of day light has created dark spaces in central parts of the plan that is because of the improper access to the natural light which the main problem that this research is studying. However through all historic durations there is a rich architectural heritage without which the lighting problems in contemporary apartments could not be solved. The objective of this paper is to gain lighting strategies to increase day lighting and luminance level into contemporary houses. Using transparent elements and creating transparent spaces between public and private areas in order to pass the day light to the internal layers can be one of the solutions. The method of this research is a deep analysis on Traditional architecture of Iran and day-lighting strategies that were successfully used. After that by analyzing contemporary architecture of Tehran, current problems will be shown and discussed. Comparing traditional architecture of Iran with the contemporary one and applying new strategies, which is in concord with Iran's culture and climate, will be the main outcome of this study.
