English abstract:
Vernacular architecture is believed to integrate
certain building features that were developed in a
long process of adaptation and adjustment and
therefore may embody valuable solutions for
maintaining desirable indoor conditions. This claim,
however, should not be taken for granted and must be
critically examined in different contexts and settings.
The Central Hall building type, which can be found
in Lebanon, Israel, Syria and the Palestinian
territories, is an example of an architectural
vernacular that may prove to contain applicable
design strategies in confronting the hot and humid
climate of the region's coastal plain. This paper
focuses on describing and understanding the thermal
performance of Central Hall houses in the Israeli
coastal plain through the integration of architectural
and historical survey with computer-aided simulation
