The objective of this research is to investigate if the structural system of a glazed facade or an atrium can be used to reduce downdraft and to avoid thermal comfort problems in the occupied zone. Thereby, the initial costs of e.g. a convector or ventilation system could be saved and the energy consumption could be reduced in the future.
