    Abstract

    Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) is a platform that allows the systematic study of buildings once occupied, so that lessons may be learned that will improve future design. This paper reviews a rare case of cooperation among the different stakeholders in a complex, which includes different accommodation and facilities, and is located in the heart of the Negev Desert Highlands in Israel. The paper shows how different methodological approaches may be combined in POE and how the results may inform the different stakeholders towards upgrading the project.
