To recreate this effect, keep the following considerations in mind:
Create enough of a barrier around the dome itself so that no shadows interfere with system performance.
Take care to make curb visible to users of a rooftop space. Optional Solatube turret extensions can be used to raise the height of the dome above roof level to prevent accidents, especially in high traffic areas.
Optional Solatube turret extensions can also be used to prevent dirt buildup on domes.
Curbs, curb caps, and self-flashings may be painted to match color themes at the roof level.
Incorporate barriers or signage for users of the rooftop space that: - explain the purpose of Solatube Daylighting Systems and the importance of daylight for human performance as well as energy savings. - warn them against sitting on or interfering with the domes.
