Lars Courage, Architect and Creative Director of Courage Architecten, and president of `Dutch Daylight´ from 2015 to 2023. Courage was unconsciously influenced by from an early age by the power of daylight and view to the outside. Throughout his development as an architect, the influence and especially the application of daylight-driven design has developed from unconsciously competent to consciously competent and in 2012 his office was the winner of the Dutch Daylight Award.
The office´s designs are composed with open light support structures, large glass surfaces where comfort and energy-consciousness go hand in hand; from single family homes, collective housing, municipality center to car sales facilities.
Since 2004, `Dutch Daylight´ has been actively committed to placing daylighting in the central place it deserved in architecture and the built environment. `Dutch Daylight´ not only wants to point out the high potential of daylight to architects, designers and urban planners, but also to make clients, policy makers and other parties involved aware of the importance of good quality use of daylight.
