Offering a sense of sophistication and style when entering the larger apartments and town houses of the Olympic Village, the Zehnder Nova radiator has been specified for use within the entrance hall. Whilst under floor heating was the preferred choice throughout the remainder of the apartment or house, unfortunately the heat loss calculated within the entrance halls necessitated an additional heat output, so an alternative heat source was required.
Working as part of an under floor heating system with temperatures of 55°C flow and 45°C return the size of the radiator was critical to the heat output. Add to this the restricted space within the entrance hall for a wall mounted radiator and the available options were limited.
Using a 1.8m high, vertical, double panel Zehnder Nova (NVV) the architect was able to design a recess within the hallway to accommodate the radiator, maximize the available space and provide the required heat output to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
