From Tradition to Modernity: Innovative shadings to save energy in residential architecture of Bodrum, Turkey
There is much to be learned from traditional buildings while improving them for contemporary needs. With the change of climatic, structural and physical conditions of buildings as well as inhabitants with different life styles, energy consumption in such buildings have increased. At the same time, contemporary buildings are being built generally without traditional principles and without attention to efficient energy use. In the current concern for sustainability, there is a pressing need to develop and install shading devices that can help transform them to energy efficient buildings.
This paper presents innovative architectural shading ideas for reducing the energy demand of the residential buildings in Bodrum developed using building energy simulations. First, a traditional house in Bodrum has been analysed from the point of view of energy consumption. Then a prototype house has been developed according to the simulation results of the reference objects. Local, window, and roof shading elements have been developed for this prototype in order to measure the energy reduction effect. As a conclusion, their effects on energy saving has been described and the potential of introducing the shading devices in the new buildings has been discussed.

Building Energy Performance Simulations of the Residential Houses in Mediterranean Climate: Case Study for Bodrum, Turkey
This work results from the doctoral thesis, where residential houses in Bodrum have been analyzed energetically using the simulation software DesignBuilder. Bodrum is a characteristic city in the Mediterranean zone, and obtains optimum conditions for energy efficient design. It is under the influence of the Mediterranean climate, has hot and arid summers and mild and rainy winters.
The results have been evaluated in order to optimise the thermal behaviour of the houses for future settlements. Prototypes according these evaluations have been developed. Finally, significantly reduced energy demand values like 13.11 kWh/m²a for cooling, and 11.32 kWh/m²a for heating have been achieved.
Dieser Artikel stellt die Ergebnisse einer Dissertation dar, wobei Wohnhäuser in Bodrum anhand der Simulationssoftware DesignBuilder energetisch analysiert wurden. Bodrum ist eine charakteristische Stadt im Mittelmeerraum und ermöglicht optimale Bedingungen zur energie-effizienten Bauweise. In der Region herrscht Mittelmeerklima mit warmtrockenen Sommern, und mild-feuchten Wintern.
Die Simulationsergebnisse wurden zur Optimierung thermischen Verhaltens der Häuser in zukünftigen Siedlungen bewertet. Prototype wurden anhand dieser Bewertungen entwickelt. Zum Schluss hat man stark reduzierte Werte wie 13.11 kWh/m²a für Kühlenergiebedarf und 11.32 kWh/m²a für Heizenergiebedarf erreicht.
