SOLAR PASSIVE DESIGN

Solar passive design means taking advantage of the sun’s natural energy to heat and cool spaces without the need for heating and cooling systems.

A climate sensitive house design uses six key design principles and they are: orientation, thermal mass, window placement, ventilation, insulation and integrated gardens.

All the drawings for this design were done by hand.
