Daylighting with Advanced Skylights

While executing Architectural services for hundreds of school projects, PJHM Architects continued to innovate and implement energy conserving design on every project designed. Of note is our design for classroom natural lighting utilizing carefully configured sky-lighting in an integrated solution.

Our naturally lit classrooms were the subject of groundbreaking studies on a link between natural light and better test scores in schools in the Capistrano Unified School District in California.
