Abstract

This article first presents a full-scale survey of the impact of colored/neutral glazing systems on occupants’ visual and non-visual performances, and working performance in a daylit office in Beijing, China. Five glazing systems were investigated during a heating season from 17 November 2016 to 11 January 2017. The lighting measurements and subjective assessments were conducted to find the relationship between lighting conditions, glazing types, and visual and non-visual performances and working performance. Several main findings are achieved as follows: 1) According to the visual performances, the blue glazing could be the best solution while the bronze glazing tend to be less acceptable; the grey and green glazing systems did not show significant differences from the clear glazing. 2) No clear differences of non-visual performances can be found between various colored/neutral glazing systems. 3) The circadian light has a significant link to occupants’ non-visual performances. 4) Participants tend to get a worse performance in short-term test of GONOGO working with the occurrence of the blue glazing system.
