Online RIBA Approved CPD - How do we create better learning spaces
This RIBA Approved seminar/CPD is concerned with typical design challenges in the evolving school environment and provides an overview of third-party studies that have considered the impact school design has on its occupants.
Designing a building for comfort
Like all mammals, we are relatively fragile beings, so we have come up with various strategies, to protect ourselves from the outside environment.
What is Thermal Comfort?
The building environment, which acts as a filter between the inside and the outside, gradually became more sophisticated.
What is Visual Comfort?
Though we are now able to provide adequate artificial lighting day and night, it is well established that daylight and a view to the outside are essential to our wellbeing.
What is Acoustic Comfort?
A ‘comfortable’ acoustic environment can be defined by the quality of sounds we want to hear and the absence of sounds we don’t want to hear.
Homes, workplaces, schools and other buildings designed and built to show the Multi Comfort approach in practice - where we can monitor performance and get real-life feedback on what a Multi Comfort building feels like
