Abstract

Maintaining daylight quality while ensuring thermal comfort during periods of high solar gain proves to be a challenge in renovated multi-story housing. The objective of this study was to develop guidelines for facade renovation, where overheating problems can only be avoided through façade solutions. As a first step, different shading systems have been investigated and compared in terms of their daylight performance, visual comfort and gaze responsive characteristics. This trio evaluation method is going to be further developed and used for a larger set of selected shading devices.
