dc.description.abstract The main objective of the present study is to evaluate the design strategies applied in the redevelopment of a housing estate located in Southern Italy, in Puglia - more specifically in Lecce’s Province, aimed at optimizing three aspects: the improvement of summer thermal comfort conditions, the overall energy saving and the reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. The core hypothesis that justifies this kind of experimentation, can be found in the consideration that currently the housing sector represents the privileged interface for environmental design experimentation oriented towards passive cooling and energy saving in the Mediterranean area; the difficult task it has to accomplish is to set a good example for the undertaking of a correct and responsible behavior towards such topics and to become a virtuous reference model that demonstrates to the designers and, most of all, to the people who will be inhabiting the houses, the possibility to apply “good practices” in the attempt to enact principles that are not easily manageable and implementable. From a methodological point of view such a research branch is completely projected towards the role that architectural design should undertake in regards to what we could consider as the core matter that needs to be addresses and solved in territorial, urban and architectural realities in the Mediterranean area: passive cooling and the use of natural ventilation, in particular, in the design of exterior, intermediate and interior spaces and in the design of their technological components and devices. The main strategy adopted by such a design setting is the integrated standardization of the different technological passive systems that are available to us today, aiming at the improvement of the results from an energy and bioclimatic point of view, as an outcome of the joint effort of the devices applied in the project. en_US
