DSF ventilation strategy
Early involvement with the design team allowed us to brainstorm on the ventilation strategy of the Double Skin Façade of the Skellefteå Kulturhus.
Due to the low outdoor air temperatures and the intense solar radiation (Skellefteå climate file), there might be a
potential in energy savings if we circulate the air across the Double Skin Façade on every floor level.As illustrated, the air within the cavity can be circulated reducing the ΔΤ between the cavity and the indoors and therefore the heat gains or losses. This can potentially reduce energy and provide better thermal conditions.
