This paper looked into the possibilities of adaptive reusethrough the environmental retrofit of an existing warehouse.
Fong, C.
In the last decades researches have indicated an extremelyhigh energy consumption of the building sector. Analysing the amount of consumed energy, it is showed that almost the 70% are expended for the heating and cooling loads of the building.

Daylighting control systems have quite high potential to reduce building’s energy consumption and peak demand. Despite this potential, reported poor performance, didn’t allow substantial increase in their installation rates.
Doulos, L.; Tsangrassoulis, A.; Topalis, F.
The scope of the current paper is to present two buildingprojects that have been designed within 2006 by Gavalas Architects & Associates.
Gavalas, A.
The climate in southern Brazil is characterised by mild winters and hot-humid summers which requires the design to be adaptable to the often conflicting summer and winter requirements.
Costella, M.
This document aims to describe and present the energy efficient measures that are implemented in four dwellingsthat are currently under construction on the foothill of mountain Dionysos, northern of Athens (Greece).
Farrou, I.; Santamouris, M.; Pavlou, K.; Sfakianaki, K.; Petroulopoulou, H.; Lykouriotis, G.
Microclimate condition in an environment is influenced by the local environment condition. Urban morphology,especially building, pavement and greenery are the main factors.
Jusuf, S.K.; Wong, N.H.
This paper objective is to analyze by simulations, the thermal comfort and energy consumption when using a radiant cooling ceiling.
Catalina, T.; Virgone, J.
This paper describes ongoing energy benchmarks studies of double-skin façade buildings. A comparison between energy performance of these actual buildings and European office buildings benchmarks is discussed.
de Matos, M.; Duarte, R.
There are in Brazil ten million people in the south region of the country.
Grala da Cunha, E.; Machado, N.; Turella, L.; de Negri, L.
One of the current challenges in the urban climate researcharea mentions the standardization of procedures for data collection and analysis (OKE, 2005); this involvesnomenclatures and methods, so that the transmissionof the developed technology ca
