The lighting in the lobby and core spaces of this nursing school provides a comfortable and engaging atmosphere for students to relax, study, and collaborate. Meanwhile, the laboratory spaces simulate a healthcare environment for realistic learning. This is especially true of the lighting and controls in the simulation rooms which are able to mimic a power outage to provide real-world emergency training. For daylight integration, the design team coordinated the ceiling near the glass façade to be raised and sloped, maximizing daylight penetration.
