Optimized model for the Energy Performance of a Large Atrium Space

Jason’s research interests lie in the energy performance optimisation and occupational comfort of atrium spaces. Atrium designs in buildings such as hotels, commercial buildings, shopping centres and railway stations have become increasingly popular all over the world. Inevitably, modern living in a concrete jungle, more and more people enjoy the atrium space where the design is aesthetically appealing, providing a comfortable environment with natural daylight and a greater sense of space. The atrium is not merely an architectural elegance, but it is a space that provides a highly pleasing, relaxing and comfortable environment for all the people inside it.

There are many factors that affect the occupational comfort and energy performance of an atrium space. The major aim of this research is to perform multiple parametric studies to investigate the impact of different factors on the energy performance and on the comfort level of an atrium space.
