Creation of shade To escape the heat, it is necessary to prevent the sun’s rays from entering the house. Common systems are the slope of the roof and eaves, vegetation and awnings, umbrellas, curtains and blinds. In short, the aim is to avoid using air conditioning as it consumes energy. *Studying the breezes and the effect of the sun’s rays defined the position of this house. The built-in overhangs give shade in the summer.
Cross ventilation If the area’s breezes and the position of windows, doors and balconies have been factored in, air currents can be taken advantage of to cool the house and avoid or reduce the use of air conditioning. A cool tower is another mechanism for cooling as it forces out hot air through openings in the upper part of the house.
