Concept design for a new home in the tropics
The design concept features light framed structures, large louvred windows for maximizing natural cross-ventilation, roof and wall gable venting, as well as wide shading eaves. Large breezeway spaces helps encourage through ventilation around the buildings from well-sized garden settings. Under floor rainwater tanks, solar panels and solar hot water system maximize available natural resources. Raised floor levels allow sub-floor cross ventilation to prevent heat build up, while the house's orientation has been designed to maximize use of prevailing cooling winds and sun control.
