The residential concept for the Masdar Institute campus focuses on the creation of lively energetic neighborhoods. The Institute campus is formed around a hierarchy of streets and squares that make up the backdrop to an environment of integration, communication and cooperation.Apartments are accessed via a fully shaded atrium space that exploits thermal mass and natural ventilation to provide free cooling while atrium roof lights allow diffuse daylight, blocking direct sunlight. The apartment units themselves have screen-shielded windows and windows located near the ceilings to maximize natural light, both from the outside and from the interior atrium, while maintaining privacy.
