It is probably the harder way to do it, but I have been unsuccessful in doing this in the Wizard mode.
So set up you building in Wizard, make SURE everything that can be done in Wizard is accomplished. Of course, make a copy in case disaster should strike.
Then switch to DETAIL EDIT mode, and simply raise the wall heights to the height of the atrium. As far as i know, any skylight on the roof will impact the entire atrium volume.
Hope that helps.

When I choose a zone to be a multilevel atrium, the program shows that it is still part of my Building program in all floors. I would like to models a multilevel atrium with a sky light on the top. Is there any way to model the effect of sky lights (assuming daylight dimming control is on) when having multilevel atrium?    Thanks Farid
