The best way to maximize sunlight penetration of a large apartment block is to do as the Sydney Boston University Residence does and create vertical channels through the center of the structure.

Featuring ground-to-sky windowed crevices that split the massive structure into three sections, the Sydney Boston University Residence shines its own colorful glow into the city.
