Natural Ventilation

Natural ventilation and solar passive design go hand in hand.

Characterised by operable windows, doors and vents to the outside, controlled natural ventilation ensures that not only is stale indoor air replaced and pleasant breezes captured during the warmer months, but that in summer, thermal mass strategically designed within our buildings may be cooled naturally; this “coolth” is stored and then released during the evening.

Natural ventilation is also prioritised where possible to reduce volatile organic compound (VOC) concentrations and to encourage alertness and well-being within our indoor environments.
