Middle units Dark or Not

At Pleasant Hill Cohousing (Chuck Durrett, architect), the middle units have lots of light. In addition to skylights in each unit and high ceilings, Chuck designed an opening between the first and second floors near the staircase and right under the skylight. That lets light flow down to the first floor.

An added bonus of middle units, especially here where we have lots of passive heating and cooling features designed in, is that they tend to stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the end units.
