Section 2: Individual LEED Credit Reviews
Access to views must be balanced with
considerations for acoustical privacy. Designs
employing open work areas, low partition heights,
and interior glazing panels must be carefully
executed to maintain good acoustical quality within
the work spaces and acceptable acoustical
separation between spaces.
Many of the strategies that increase access to views
will also increase the penetration of daylight into a
building. A potential synergy therefore exists
between this credit and credit EQ-8.1 (Daylight &
Views, Daylight in 75% of Spaces).
