German term or phrase: Lichthof
Es ist das größte Inhalatorium Europas, das vor allem durch seinen Lichthof besticht. Sollte das Therapiezentrum geöffnet haben, lohnt es sich einen Blick auf das wunderschöne Jugendstilgebäude zu werfen.

English translation:Atrium
Explanation:
we had this question before and this was the accepted answer. (see Glossaries).

Deutscher Duden: Atrium = nach oben offener (Haupt)raum des altröm. Hauses; archit. Innenhof

Oxford Dictionary:
1. an open-roofed entrance hall or central court in an ancient Roman house.
2. a central hall or court in a modern building, typically rising through several stories and having a glazed roof.

A Google-search for atrium+jugendstil in English sites produces 70 hits.

Therefore, I think it applies.
