Comfortable roof gardens

By order of Kolmont Woonprojecten Actiflow conducted a study on wind comfort at the roof gardens of residence Zuidzicht in Hasselt, Belgium. These roof gardens are fitted with swimming pools and comfortable usage of these areas is strongly dependent on the local wind flow pattern.

Actiflow studied the wind climate using CFD simulations, analysing the most frequent and the most powerful wind directions. The results showed that precautions needed to be taken in order to guarantee a comfortable wind climate. Together with the architects, BURO II & ARCHI+I, Actiflow designed and simulated several wind screens.
