We performed a detailed assessment of changes in spatial quality due to mechanical installations in renovation.
The article presents two main findings. First we identified common spatial quality determinants in the research literature: view, privacy, lighting, spatiality, spatial arrangements, the transition between public and private spaces, and perceived, built, and human densities. Second we found that the available assessment for the renovation of dwellings covers only partially the impact of mechanical installations on spatiality.
We suggest, based on these findings, a general spatial quality checklist to support architects, developers, and building owners. We probed deeper into the impact of mechanical installations on the spatiality of dwellings to propose a spatial quality assessment to be considered before and after renovation.

The proposed assessment represents a further step toward the inclusion of spatial quality in building renovation processes, which benefits stakeholders from design professionals to end users. Skip to Main Content. Search in: This Journal Anywhere. Advanced search. Journal homepage.

Sustainable refurbishment - Wikipedia
Toggle navigation Additional Book Information. Description Table of Contents Author s Bio. Summary The refurbishment of existing buildings is a crucial yet often neglected subject within sustainable architecture; attention is usually focused on new buildings. Many old buildings waste large amounts of energy and provide poor internal conditions for occupants through poor lighting, poor ventilation, solar penetration and glare, and poor control of heating and cooling.
Demolition is an option but the refurbishment alternative is increasingly seen as more sustainable in terms of architectural value, materials use, neighbourhood disruption and waste disposal. In addition, the potential impact of low energy refurbishment is much greater than that for new build since there are many more buildings already in existence than will be built in the next 10 - 20 years, the period over which many CO2 emission targets apply.
The Handbook of Sustainable Refurbishment: Non-Domestic Buildings offers architects, engineers and a wide range of building professionals practical advice, illustrated by real examples. It moves from principles of sustainable refurbishment to specific design and engineering guidance for a variety of circumstances.
