Residential Medium Tower in Jeddah

Part 1 Project 2016
Shaima Banjar
Effat University, Saudi Arabia
Buildings in Saudi Arabia consume 80% from the energy production, 70% only for cooling due to the extreme heat.

As a response to this issue, the proposed project aims to achieve thermal comfort and natural ventilation in the tower. The building orientation catches the favorable wind, the mass differential heights act as a wind catcher and facilitate air movements, the existence of a courtyard and further solutions were adapted.
