This paper aims to study the impact of sunlight and daylight on the affective emotions of the dwellers towards their homes. The approach used for this purpose is phenomenological and is based on three concepts : homeliness or familarity, appropriation, and poetic sublimation. In this work, the home is considered as the behavioural setting of this research and two case studies are investigated: traditional houses of both Algiers Casbah in the coastal area of Algeria and the old city of Ghardaia in the northern part of its Sahara desert. The preliminary outcomes presented in this paper are part of a broader research including people's reactions and attitudes, of hot dry regions and of Islamic culture, towards various daylighting and sunlighting strategies in different working and living spaces.
