Sealed buildings

From: Suzanne Dodson <suzanne_dodson>

I have a question and would very much appreciate any information which
anyone can provide.  We are planning a new building and I would like to
know of any examples of successful combinations of air-conditioned areas
and open window areas in the same building.  Although no one disputes
the need for climate control for the collections, people are not
enthusiastic about working in an air-conditioned environment.

Our climate is moderate, without extremes of temperature.  Generally the
conditions outside are very pleasant.  We have one building which is
sealed and the occupants have always hated it.

I'd like to know of any buildings (recent and/or satisfactory) where the
collections are kept in an air-conditioned space but where the areas
where people work have windows which open.

Thanks very much for your help.
