AbstractThe purpose of this research is to determine how a design regarding natural light enhancement can be used to remedy the problem of little natural lighting in urban apartments in hopes to improve the lives of residents and advance the growth of indoor plants. This proposed design is in a 600 sqft, one bedroom, north facing apartment, located in Washington Heights, Manhattan, NY. By creating a method of interior light enhancement, this design can create an improved environment for people and enhance plant growth in limited natural light apartments.
