But, as one passes through this narrow door, contrary to the boxy external perception, one enters a light drenched, lustrously finished, spacious interior, embellished with the precious artefacts on display within. Daylight filters in through the perforated screens of the facade, and in through the glass walls enveloping the spaces, climatically justifying the double facade. This is supplemented by sunlight pouring in through open to sky courtyards provided internally. This arrangement takes advantage of the pleasant climate of the Yunnan plateau, replacing a considerable amount of artificial lighting and cooling requirement with its natural counterpart. Photovoltaic panels have also been installed to supplement this reduction in energy consumption for lighting and cooling needs.
