Provide more natural lighting to interior offices.

The USPTO buildings (completed in 2004) were designed so that most of the interior space receives no natural lighting. This includes half of the offices, most of the conference rooms, and most of the break rooms.

 

Installing windows in the top 1/3 of the interior office walls would allow for privacy while providing natural light from the window offices.
