Through the studies that obtain information about the user experience on lighting system performance, user satisfaction can be obtained. These studies are significant in order to analyse the system as a later stage and make recommendations. Following a post-occupancy evaluation (POE) study having focused on the user experience on the lighting system, the lighting system of the case study building has been analysed within this paper. In this analysis, the daylighting system and artificial lighting system have been examined. The design parameters for each system have been determined and different scenarios have been created. Under the impact of different scenarios, the performances of the daylighting and artificial lighting systems were analysed through the validated lighting simulation software DIALUX. It has been observed that the scenarios created for both the daylighting system and the artificial lighting system have had different impacts on the related systems. Through this kind of analysis studies, the most suitable lighting system design solution can be obtained for the evaluated space.
