7-Eleven is an international chain of convenience stores that offers a wide range of everyday consumer products, including food, beverages, personal care products, and household items. It was founded in 1927 in Texas, USA and currently has a presence in over 20 countries worldwide.
Sustainable architecture evolves to increase global benefits. The goal is to reduce the consumption of energy, water and natural resources, minimize waste and improve the quality of life of the building's occupants. Natural lighting and ventilation systems were implemented, in addition to the incorporation of renewable energy technologies, such as solar panels.
Various studies are created and iterated to evaluate design, materials and features. Lighting analysis can have a major impact on energy efficiency and quality of life for building occupants. In this project, both energy efficiency and light quality were considered. Of great importance to the design of applicable sustainable strategies was the distribution of light, which had to be appropriate for the intended use of the space and had to take into account the specific tasks to be performed in the store.
