It is often asserted that the sun and traditional dwellings were in a perfect harmony, whereas the built environment produced in the last fifty years has in fact marginalized most of the climatic factors. Increasingly, an effort is being made to reco... Read More about The impact of sunlight and daylight on the dwelling's occupancy: case of the hot dry regions of Algeria..

In buildings, daylight is a commonly-used source of wellbeing, aesthetic delight and energy efficiency. Daylight is therefore one of the main parameters considered in the design of buildings. Methods used by architectural designers may be quantitativ... Read More about An evaluation method for daylighting quality in buildings under clear sunny skies..

Sunlighting and daylighting strategies in the traditional urban spaces and buildings of the hot arid regions. (2003)
Journal Article
BELAKEHAL, A. TABET AOUL, K. and BENNADJI, A. 2004. Sunlighting and daylighting strategies in the traditional urban spaces and buildings of the hot arid regions. Renewable energy [online], 29(5), pages 687-702. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.renene.2003.09.001

In hot arid regions, sunlighting is an essential consideration to achieve an environmentally conscious architecture. This paper aims to identify the sunlighting strategies and their resulting typology in some urban spaces, different types of building...

A daylighting evaluation in offices under clear sunny skies. (2003)
Presentation / Conference
BELAKEHAL, A., TABET AOUL, K. and BENNADJI, A. 2003. A daylighting evaluation in offices under clear sunny skies. Presented at the 20th Passive and low energy architecture conference 2003 (PLEA 2003): rethinking development: are we producing a people-oriented habitat? 9-12 November 2003, Santiago, Chile.

Various research works revealed that occupant’s behaviour and preferences in terms of daylight are of a great importance to these purposes success. The POE method was used to assess the daylighting quality in South Algerian contemporary buildings whe... Read More about A daylighting evaluation in offices under clear sunny skies..
