“Svinkløv Badehotel 2.0” is a master thesis done at the Aalborg University. The goal of the work was to propose a new hotel on the site of Svinkløv Badehotel that burned down in September 2016 Moreover, the goal of this work was to research the natural ventilation strategies in contemporary architecture in the era of sustainable architecture development.

This work was done by using The Problem Based Learning and The Integrated Design methodologies developed at the Aalborg University. The research was done by using literature, on-site excursions as well as an abroad research-excursion.

This iconic Badehotel with a rich history should be rebuilt in the opinion of many Danes and also the building owners. Thanks to this work, the new building is trying to resurrect the good qualities of the old hotel and present it in an upgraded version that can fit the contemporary sustainable architecture of the beginning of century. The natural ventilation approach is a result of the global changes in the approach to the architectural design, where the performance of the building is making ventilation strategies least important in the design process. The mechanical ventilation is trying to cover more and more of ventilation problems. This master thesis is proposing quite a unique efficient solution for ventilating the building which will be mainly run during the warm months.

Thus, this work presents a new building proposal, the natural ventilation solutions and the sustainable simulation according to the Danish energy frames from the Danish Building Regulations (BR) 2015 and (BR) 2020. Moreover, this work presents a design process behind this thesis as well as a conclusion and a reflection upon the gathered result of this work.
