Energy efficient design strategies for contemporary vernacular buildings in Egypt

Dabaieh, Marwa LU (2013) International conference on vernacular heritage and earthen architecture (CIAV) In Vernacular Heritage and Earthen Architecture: Contributions for Sustainable Development p.599-599
Abstract
: Current practice of sustainable design encompasses a range of green strategies. Modern
passive design concepts have learned to build upon climate responsive methodology that was found in and
inspired from vernacular and traditional buildings. With the present energy crises in Egypt there is a current
focus on the development of climate sensitive design building approaches. It will be the thrust of this
paper to understand the precepts of passive and energy efficient climatic design, as well as their complementary
and integrated roles in the synthesis of climatic sustainable vernacular typology in contemporary
practice. An existing project, design center in Sinai, Egypt has been chosen for its specific... (More)

and integrated roles in the synthesis of climatic sustainable vernacular typology in contemporary
practice. An existing project, design center in Sinai, Egypt has been chosen for its specific representation
of cold versus hot climate passive vernacular solutions. The paper adopted a mixed survey approach and
will discuss how the project had reached the optimum energy efficiency, and how this pilot project could
help spreading the notions of contemporary energy efficient vernacular buildings. (Less)
