Part of our contribution was to effectively introduce natural ventilation and ensure indoor air and operative temperatures lower than the set targets. Openable dampers in the vertical facade and the skylights were required. Our scope was to advise on the position and size of the openings.

As the effect of natural ventilation is highly dependent on the outdoor air temperatures, it is inevitable that occasionally the space might overheat (warm, sunny days). Our goal was to provide an indoor environment that is always welcoming; cooler than outdoors in summer and warmer than outdoors in winter.
