From the SHP web site, "Utilizing daylight was a major focus. "The open floor plan, with no perimeter offices and low 42-inch partitions, enables anyone walking through the space to experience design creation," she said. The building also has floor-to-ceiling windows and boasts sloped ceiling panels that pull natural light into the center of the space thus reducing the demand for lighting. In addition, linear pendant lights dim and brighten based on the amount of daylight. The company also installed an automatic blind system that works in connection with the sun's position. For example, the blinds are down in the morning on the east side of the building, and move up with the sun."
