Abstract

Highlights
•A multi-scale simulation methodology to assess the effects of vegetation on thermal comfort is used.
•It application is shown on a case of urban and building retrofit intervention.
•The effect of plants on the microclimate and indoor environment is assessed.
•A decrease of up to 4.8 °C in indoor temperature is registered.
•The final impact on the indoor thermal comfort based on the adaptive model is determined.
