OUTDOOR COMFORT DESIGNEMergy’s innovative outdoor comfort design carefully considers and applies key elements when implementing strategies to improve comfort in urban outdoor spaces.
Universally speaking, outdoor comfort design is a key factor for the popularity of well-loved urban spaces. Depending on the climate of a specific place, there are many defining qualities for a good open urban space design, such as, shading, air movement, evaporative cooling, water features, thermal mass and green surfaces.
Shading obstruct solar radiation from directly hitting the human body. Air movement, most commonly achieved through equipment like fans, improves the airflow that will result to a lower body temperature thus improves comfort, especially in hot and humid areas.
Evaporative cooling is a highly effective process that uses evaporative water to reduce temperature with a gain in humidity. Thermal mass is another process that involves evaporation with the used of thermally coupled pipes embedded in it. Green surfaces serve dual purpose as they do not only act as protection to wall and floors, but also provide evaporative cooling.
