It was the building owners’ express wish not to install a mechanical ventilation system. So the architect was able to include, at the early design stages, the ideal positioning of the necessary supply and exhaust air openings in the form of facade and roof windows. As a result, the ventilation drive (chimney effect) gives maximum benefit with no energy consumption.
Both the building owners and the architect were open to using an innovative ventilation concept with automated windows. The indoor air quality showed a constant CO2 concentration far below 1,000 ppm, achieving “special to high indoor air quality” according to the norm. In summer mode, Natural Ventilative Cooling has also proved its worth, with balanced and pleasant temperatures.
