Harley Ellis Devereaux is pleased to announce their spotlight in a recent Eneref Institute report. Eneref Institute, a research and advocacy organization for sustainable development has chosen the West Berkeley Public Library to demonstrate the benefits of natural interior daylight vs artificial electric light. Harley Ellis Devereaux (HED) was selected by the City of Berkeley as the architect because of their innovative Zero Net Energy approach to the site and program.

ENEREF INSTITUTE REPORT:
The West Berkeley Public library is the first zero net energy (ZNE) library in California. To minimize energy consumption, the building design scheme incorporates natural interior daylight through a series of VELUX skylights and a large glass curtain wall on the main façade. Because the skylights open for ventilation, the HED design team devised a clever natural ventilation scheme that uses negative pressure to pull in fresh air and also helps to regulate the temperature.

Eneref Institute’s case study report is intended to demonstrate the numerous benefits of natural interior daylight (also known as daylighting). Beyond the energy saved from a reduction in electrical lighting, the sun provides the library interior space with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, according to the librarians interviewed in the Eneref Institute report.

“An important aspect to designing the spaces included paying particular attention to the areas where staff work; in all of the facilities staff asked for natural light and fresh air,” explains Donna Corbeil, Director of Library Services for Berkeley Public Library.

HED architect Gerard Lee credits the quality of the library space to the natural interior daylight his design team created, which includes the innovative skylights and the well-placed windows.

Electrical lighting in the US accounts for 17% of the total electricity consumed by residential and commercial buildings, according to the US Energy Information Administration. By contrast, harvesting sunlight uses no electricity and burns no fossil fuels. “Natural interior daylight is the low-hanging fruit in energy reduction in the US, and we should urge greater use, wherever feasible,” contends Eneref Institute Founding Director, Seth Warren Rose.
