Natural and Artificial lighting are two types of lighting that been used widely in food court area. The balancing usage of these two sources of light will contribute in energy efficiency for building. The energy efficiency will help in saving energy used and listed as Green Building. Energy efficiency is one of the criteria for rating that takes the energy saving for the building entitle as Green Building. High demand of shopping complex and rapid development in Malaysia cause excessive usage of energy in commercial building had drawn construction industries towards green building technology. The awareness of public about sustainability practice in food court for commercial building on natural and artificial lighting in Malaysia is still low. The activities held in these three case studies, location of opening and building itself had affected the light received in those areas. Data were collected by using observation on that area and distribution of questionnaire to public in those case studies. The illuminance of light in those case studies had determine by using equipment called lux meter. Together, these findings suggest that wide area of opening and numbers of opening installed in food court area to allow maximum amount of natural lighting penetrate and minimize the usage of energy. Besides that, level of awareness about the energy efficiency among public and industries increase
through more exposure about Green Building
