# Light-Filled Extension
A light-filled extension is a building addition designed to maximize natural light indoors. It utilizes windows, skylights and other glazing elements to flood interconnected interior spaces with sunlight. Floor-to-ceiling windows and clerestory designs high on walls optimize views while admitting daylight overhead. Glare is minimized through overhangs, awnings and landscaping that direct light in without creating harsh shadows. Materials are selected to reflect light further into rooms. Interior layouts consider window placement to leverage light from multiple orientations. Hard surfaces like floors or ceilings brightened with light colors also bounce daylight around. The expanse and placement of glazing ensures an illuminated, airy ambience ideal for living and working spaces connected to an extension.
