English abstract:
This paper presents the results of a recent research effort to collect and analyze data pertaining to traditional
bath buildings ("hammams") in Egypt, Turkey, Morocco, Syria, and Algeria. Thereby, the energy
performance of and the thermal comfort conditions in five such buildings were studied. Moreover, empirically
calibrated building performance simulation models of a number of objects were generated in order
to predict the consequences of alternative thermal retrofit measures. The results provide the opportunity
for an objective assessment of the actual energy and indoor environmental performance of these
