•Shading devices provide a higher overall performance than solar control glazing.•Larger windows with shading devices provide better overall performance.•A multicriteria analysis is required to assess indoor daylight by multiple metrics.•Translating monocriterion results to single values is one of the main challenges.•Under a holistic approach the architecture conception phase can be improved.
