Imperial College – Windcatchers

Imperial College – Windcatchers


Architects: Gatehouse Architectural Consultants

The Library is on the top floor, with full height glazing and suffered for many years from chronic overheating in the summer months.  However, the Windcatcher natural ventilation systems were the chosen strategy due to their energy saving features.  Another major benefit and consideration for the College was the improved health and comfort aspects of natural ventilation systems, which have proved to provide a more calm and stress-free working and studying environment.

Phil Evans, Energy Manager says, “We are all aware how difficult it is to study and work in a stuffy and warm environment and this was one of the key factors in the College’s decision.  After all, what could be more energy efficient than ‘free fresh air’.”
