Torslandaskolan: Design of fixed elements for optimized performance
This time it was all about supporting LINK Arkitektur optimize the geometry of fixed external elements to maximize real life daylight and views out, while minimizing overheating risk. Elemental part of our approach was the proper combination of Dynamic Thermal Modelling and Raytracing tools. At Inform Design we believe that properly advising on solar control mechanisms is a challenging task that requires thorough knowledge of building physics, clear understanding of the possibilities and limitations of simulation tools and setting the right performance requirements. Intention is not enough to lead to a successful design; inadequate knowledge will result in poor solutions that will be costly and will negatively impact on performance and design.
