Here’s a house that is a product of brisk ideation between owner and designer. Thermal comfort is ensured five ways:

  1. Employing cross-ventilation at the ground floor to protect indoor air quality. Open-planning also mutes the division between outdoors and indoors.
  2. Maximizing vertical stack effect using air convection between ground and second floor.
  3. Fenestration scheme to minimize heat gain during afternoons. Awning-type mechanisms also maintains air flow even during heavy downpour.
  4. High thermal mass like toilets are located on the hot sides of the house.
  5. Roof-type channels heat outside through induced air flow within plenum.

Target completion of construction is October 2016. For more detail, please contact author.
