Promoting Daylighting in Design
Core Values
Kate Borgner, LEED AP

 If we don't model the daylight, we're just guessing.

Gnomon* Consulting, LLC is a daylighting consultancy based in Seattle, WA. Our goal is to promote design decisions that result in energy savings and delightful access to natural light in buildings. We work with architects, engineers, lighting designers, and owners in an integrated design process from early planning stages to completion of projects. Making the right decisions about site and building orientation at the outset is key to the success of any daylighting and energy-saving design strategies. Because daylight modeling is an essential step in testing how well a proposed design solution will perform, it is also a key part of sustainable design practice.



Our daylighting consulting services include analysis, daylight modeling and visualization; assistance with selection of materials and lighting control systems; and computer simulation and documentation of daylighting credits for various building rating systems, including LEED, Collaborative for High performance Schools  (CHPS), and Washington Sustainable Schools Protocol (WSSP). Gnomon Consulting, LLC is a Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) certified with the State of Washington.

According to Heinz Rudolf, Partner at BOORA Architects in Portland, "The only way to see what is really happening in a daylit space under various seasonal conditions is to model it.  I believe that every important daylighted room should be modeled . . . if we don't model the daylighting in our spaces, we're just guessing."

*A gnomon is the part of a sundial that casts the shadow. Gnomon (pronounced nomon) is an ancient Greek word meaning "indicator," "one who discerns," or "that which reveals."
