The 'light wells' are a lightingsystem which, as its name suggests, are formed by ducts capable of efficientlytransmitting natural light from a higher point to a series of lower areas.Compared to other known and already commercially available analog systems(grouped under the generic term of solar tubes), the 'light wells' deliverthrough the building adequate levels of natural lighting, not only vertically,but also horizontally.

The 'light wells' may thusbecome suitable elements to generate lighting atmospheres inside buildings,occupying much less space than the required by traditional courtyards. The'light wells' were one of the strategies developed for the project of theAndalusian Energy Agency, as part of a set of architectural systems designed toperform bioclimatic functions, following a biological analogy that associatesbuilding functions to a living organism.
