A dwelling as a self-isolation space becomes essential in the outbreak of COVID-19 to confirm positive or asymptomatic patients. As Wirz-Justice et al. (2020) argue that by its ultraviolet radiance can be considered as a disinfectant and drug to treat the immune system, daylight is needed to cure those patients. However, dwelling users in densely populated areas are struggling to be exposed to daylight in the right amount. This paper aims to propose and explore the daylight strategies and design of self-isolation spaces of dwellings in dense areas. The dwelling model is simulated and explored using Andrewmarsh PD: 3D Sun-Path and VELUX Daylight Visualizer 3. The daylight analysis is detailed using Andrewmarsh PD: Dynamic Daylight and VELUX Daylight Visualizer 3. The data obtained are used to explore the position and size of openings which let the required amount of daylight in a particular time. As a final simulation and exploration, this study suggests strategies and design recommendations for a healthy space of self-isolation.
