I love passive design

2009_11_16 013
Ahh, the benefits of passive design... The temperature reached 33 degrees Celsius today (and its only Spring!).  I was dreading being stuck at home, rather than being at work in an air conditioned office.  But it wasn’t that bad. We closed the windows, drew our heavy curtains, turned the ceiling fans on, and were thankful for the insulated walls and ceiling,  and north facing veranda that shades the windows from the sun.


As soon as it cooled slightly outside, we opened the house up again and the breeze which is maximised by good cross-ventilation, cooled the house quickly. I love passive design.
