Microclimate effect toward indoor and outdoor temperature of Villa Isola UPI


Villa Isola is one of the heritage buildings with art deco relic of the Dutch East Indies, now became the rectorate of Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI). The building was built in October 1932 – March 1933 and changes its function into office in 1954. The changes of the spatial structure from 4 floors into five floors to meet the needs of space, it also changed the interior with a segmented room. Measurement of the globe temperature (Tg); air temperature (Ta) and the surface temperature (Ts) were performed at a point indoor and outdoor with a 15 minutes interval. The phenomenon of heat temperature difference (∆Ts) at 0.50°C indoor, meanwhile the outdoor ∆Ts = 2.2°C. This paper then, will give a description of Villa Isola, its temperature alteration both indoor and outdoor.
