The ipRGCs in the human eye mediate several effects on people, such as alertness and circadian rhythms. The spectral, temporal and spatial characteristics of light influence the magnitude of these effects. To facilitate the anticipation of the ipRGC-influenced light (IIL) responses in building design, new simulation tools are needed. This paper presents an extension to the open-access simulation tool Lark, available as a plugin to Grasshopper for Rhino. The proposed extension includes a set of additional options, components, and templates that incorporate currently available knowledge on the IIL responses. The applicability of the extension is demonstrated in a simulation workflow.
