Climate sensitive Urban planning

  • The district layout, resulting from a design competition, was elaborated further, based on the project's climate findings.
  • A guideline on climate-sensitive planning was developed for the district's realisation process.
  • A smart street network and southwest/southeast-facing building orientation has reduced full sun exposure time and extended shade periods.
  • The allocation of open spaces within the overall block structure was adjusted to improve the district's air ventilation, resulting in major cooling effects.
