Residential housing has to become more sustainable to meet global energy goals (Silvester et al., 2017), yet the challenge is to integrate the refurbishments that reduce energy with the way people live. The context of this project is the 2ndSKIN project, which refurbishes houses to become zero energy. Zero energy houses are more airtight as a...

The Earth Wind and Fire system (EWF), designed by Ben Bronsema, is a system that creates natural air-conditioning. This is designed for office buildings and the open floor spaces that come with such a function. On the moment of writing this paper, a large portion (7.28 million m2) of the office buildings are structurally vacant in the...

By using Ladybug and Honeybee for Grasshopper, the energy production potential of high rise envelopes was investigated. Together with a technical design and the formulation of a flowchart strategy for energy production on high rise, an answer to the question ‘How can high rise envelopes be utilized for energy production?’ was sought after. The...
