Transitional Spaces: the role of sheltered semi-outdoor spaces as microclimatic modifiers on school buildings in the UK climate

Simos Yannas, Rosa Schiano-Phan

Field observations and extensive computer modelling and simulation studies combining thermal, airflow and daylighting analysis have provided design guidelines on how to achieve acceptable environmental conditions that allow outdoor spaces adjacent to school classrooms to be used as extension of the teaching space without adversely affecting natural light and fresh air supply to the parent building. PhD awarded 2012.
