/// PIERCED SOLAR CHIMNEY
IMAGINED BY: NEND Workshop “Re-Imagine the House”
KEYWORDS: ventilation, solar chimney
Ventilation is one of the major issues of old houses. One method to enhance ventilation is to introduce a solar chimney into an existing house. The solar chimney generates air movement by creating pressure differences due to the air at the top of the chimney heating up. Besides contributing to the comfort and performance energy of a building, a solar chimney pierces the building and thereby creates an exciting combination of two building volumes.
