Cross Ventilation

Natural ventilation is a passive strategy that uses the natural forces of wind and buoyancy to deliver fresh air into buildings. It regulates the indoor environment and changes the air in the building through openings in the fa├žade and/or roof, resulting in lowered CO2 levels, improved air quality, and cooler indoor temperatures with appropriate outdoor conditions.
