(#481) Daylight factor for atrium kitchens/ food courts


In case there is food court, kitchens, in the atrium of the building and inner circulation area (corridors) are they required to meet daylight compliance? Since GRIHA has outlined DF compliance for such spaces in residential buildings (Table 13.2) and such spaces in retail buildings are designed differently, how can they meet the same DF compliance?


Food court, kitchens areas, corridors etc.  have to demonstrate compliance for daylight (DF is to be met as per thresholds defined). You may choose the thresholds based upon spaces with similar function.
