Abstract

The topic of indoor overheating in a modern and well-insulated building is investigated. A real case study is proposed, where, even if the summer ambient conditions are not extreme, thermal discomfort has been verified during the first years of operations. The office building, built recently in Berlin, fulfils the German requirements in matter of energy performance of buildings and heat protection in summertime. Active system for the space cooling are not installed. In the frame of the new international approach to the cost-optimality, by adopting the adaptive comfort criteria for naturally-ventilated buildings, strategies for improving the indoor conditions during the cooling season are here investigated, by analysing various typologies and management strategies for solar shadings.
