A laboratory for testing comfort, with people inside

Initial experiments at the Façade System Interactions Lab

04 August 2022

Two rooms where only the 30m² dimensions remain fixed provide the backdrop to our latest research into renewable energies. From offices to classrooms to apartments, the parameters of the spaces can be changed according to need - inside, people seem to be working or quietly relaxing and passing time. However, in reality the areas make up a high-tech laboratory where the most diverse housing technologies - from facades to heating and cooling systems - are tested. The idea is to evaluate building solutions while also considering the comfort perceived by those who use the building.
