Abstract: To prevent further climatic destruction on earth, the built industry has a significant role to play in developing healthy, human-centric and sustainable green buildings. From lighting to acoustics to indoor air quality, a balance of all indoor environmental conditions shall be achieved to optimise the occupant experience. In interior workplaces, lighting has consistently been valued as the top two factors that directly affect the occupant health, performance and well-being. Insufficient daylighting compromises human health and well-being. By influencing the body’s natural circadian rhythm, light can regulate human physiology and the sleep-wake cycle. With 90% of the waking hours indoors, lighting in existing buildings remains old-fashioned and far from supporting adequate circadian entrainment. In view of the above, this paper aims to promote the adoption of human-centric lighting and raise awareness on the benefits of switching to more sustainable and efficient lighting systems. This paper also seeks to identify the user preferences of their preferred zones within interior workspaces on campus that shall adopt sustainable lighting designs to maximise occupant health and well-being. To achieve the goals of this paper, analyses of the three most critical lighting characteristics, preferred interior zones and future opportunities for lighting technologies were conducted based on the research methodologies of this paper.
