Abstract: Existing state of the art often view passive strategies as a mean for energy efficiency, while their effect on summer thermal comfort in temperate climatic conditions has been given lesser attention. Assessing these strategies require practitioners to provide the right combination of tools; proper measurement indices; and perform simulations as close as possible to real-life circumstances. This paper studies the issue with reference to an existing apartment building in real settings. Results here are in line with previous findings that recommend a synergy of passive summer strategies to reduce the impacts of over temperature in buildings.
