Designed to peer out over landscape and views, large roof overhanging hover overhead shading the house in summer, and insulated concrete slabs and thermal mass walls are optimised for  passive solar gain naturally heating the during winter. Centralised clerestory works as a climate chimney creating a natural stack effect, naturally ventilating and cooling the house during warmer months.
