This paper focuses on internal lighting ambiances of architectural adaptive façades. DARMIN has been developed as an operational methodology addressing the morphological transformations of a façade to enhance the experience of space. Design solutions are generated by DARMIN, created as a response to visual preferences and daylighting performance. The research suggests that an adaptive façade optimizes the relationship between outside and inside in accordance with the variability of daylighting patterns, and should therefore quantitatively and qualitatively improve the experience of internal and external spaces.
