When planning a building, it is necessary to examine the building site and formulate a plan rooted in the climate and landscape. This is a necessary process toward realizing sustainable buildings. There are no two building plans with identical building site conditions, and the same can be said for facility designs.
The radiant heating and cooling plan devised by Nikken Sekkei for the new Densan main office building is closely linked to the architectural plan, the lighting plan, the climate, and the landscape. Based on the example of the new Densan main office building, information will be presented here on logical radiant heating and cooling plans that make use of the climate and landscape.
