This paper presents an overview of peer-reviewed investigations of subjective issues linked to the use of daylighting in office buildings, particularly studies of preferred physical and luminous conditions in daylit office environments, and studies of occupant satisfaction and acceptance of electric lighting and window shading controls. The literature shows a consistent strong preference for daylight and a wide distribution between individuals in relation to the preferred illuminance levels in daylit offices. Existing knowledge about how people respond to daylight-linked lighting and shading controls in the workplace is very limited; therefore, this paper presents a summary of knowledge gaps in the field of daylighting and its interaction with the occupants. The resulting key directions for future research highlight issues for which a better understanding is required for the development of lighting and window shading control systems that are both energy efficient and suitable for the office occupants.
