Article
The thermal comfort assessment of vernacular dwellings, as well as their inherently linked thermal dynamic modelling process, present specific challenges which remain unaddressed in the literature. The overarching purpose of this review is to identify and analyse the main methods and challenges in thermal comfort evaluation and modelling of vernacu...
Article
Understanding the indoor environmental conditions of livable architectural heritage such as vernacular dwellings is a key step toward its conservation. Yet, there is a lack of large-sample studies that assess indoor conditions using long-term quantitative and qualitative data complying with monitoring standards. This paper addresses this gap in Por...
Article
Heritage model calibration and validation are crucial for decreasing uncertainty and enhancing the robustness of simulation results and conservation interventions. Yet, hygrothermal modelling methodologies are marked by significant heterogeneity and lack of robustness. Aiming to provide a solution for the drawbacks identified, this study puts forth...
Article
While a significant body of literature has been published on thermal comfort in dwellings, the particular challenge presented by vernacular dwellings in striking a balance between improving thermal comfort, energy savings, and heritage conservation has not been adequately investigated. The occupants’ way of life, embodying regional cultural practic...

Article
Most common practices for solving building retrofit problems lack efficiency and overall robustness. Knowledge of novel methods that support decision-making (DM) for retrofitting is critical for sustainability and energy performance improvement. This systematic review for the first time provides a large evidence-base to assess the potential of Mult...

Book on sustainable retrofit of vernacular architecture: http://www.ingebook.com/ib/NPcd/IB_BooksVis?cod_primaria=1000187&codigo_libro=6343
Book
Full-text available
Vernacular architecture represents a great resource that has considerable potential to define principles for sustainable design and contemporary architecture. This publication is the result of an overall aim to produce a valuable tool for analysis regarding vernacular heritage through different assessments, in order to define principles to consider...
Chapter
Chapter in Book: VERSUS, HERITAGE FOR TOMORROW: Vernacular Knowledge for Sustainable Architecture. http://www.esg.pt/versus/versus_heritage_for_tomorrow.pdf
Article
This paper assesses rural vernacular heritage established in a warm temperate climate, with dry, hot summer, in São Vicente e Ventosa (SVV), Alentejo, Portugal. It takes part in a larger investigation intending to create rehabilitation guidelines, with sustainable criteria and the integration of recent technologies, to improve indoor comfort and to...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In the context of a growing change in the way we inhabit and regarding the time spent indoors, the quality of indoor air and, more generally, all the factors related to the indoor environmental comfort such as air temperature, humidity and air movement, have become issues of major relevance. In this study we will analyze and pinpoint the relation b...
