Description
:
A conceptual design for an exemplar low energy school located on a restrictive urban site. The design utilises an intelligent facade system which maximises solid and glazed thermal performance as well as reducing infiltration losses to a minimum and providing solar shading. This facade design wass coupled with high thermal mass, full mechanical heat recovery ventilation, solar thermal hot water generation and rainwater recycling to create a building that virtually heats itself, consumes minimal fresh water and remains cool in summer.
