Issues of sunlight and natural lighting condition and design of the buildings has had little research and few practical applications among other things, the absence of specific binding legislation in the CTE range. If we turn to the urban scale awareness and the number of papers addressing this subject is almost inexistent. Among the principles of bioclimatic urban, some authors like José Fariña Tojo or José Manuel Naredo determine planning criteria which can be drawn basics that directly affect the urban design. First, it is essential structural roads that respond to sunlight requirements for getting optimal orientations for the maximum utilization of natural light both for the street and for buildings annexed. Further, this road has to incorporate an appropriate vegetation to the requirements of humidity and environmental evaporation (trying to minimize thermal loads), getting all together, a urban morphology with well oriented facades and an appropriate proportion of courtyards. The research raises, from the point of view of bioclimatic urban, to analyze the influence of the most important design parameters which affect sunlight conditions, to achieve their optimization and the maximum use of natural lighting. As a case study, we analyze the urban design of a typical street in a city with warm climate and latitude between 30° and 40°. The study analyzes how urban parameters influencing external reflected component received within a space. We studied urban parameters such as building height, the width of the street, the presence of vegetation or pavement or façade materials. The research concludes with an assessment of the influence degree of each studied parameter for improving the conditions of sunlight urban design and natural lighting conditions inside the building.
