Illustration of the atrium
Our role in this project was to assist the architects in taking strategic decisions regarding the atrium design at the concept stage. This included analysis of different glazed façade options and their effect on the indoor environment.
Factors considered in the analysis were indoor air temperature stratification and the direct solar component falling on the occupants. The aim was to increase the transparency of the east, west and north glazed facades and allow for undisturbed views out without compromising the performance.
