Sun tube

A sun tube is a way of piping sunlight down into places in a building that would otherwise be dark.

Our house design used two of these: –

  • one for the utility room in the middle of the downstairs of the house with no natural light

and

  • one for the darkest part of the north-facing kitchen

This photo was taken with a flash looking into the steel tube
