Owner approach of sustainability
The building is constructed as a prototype of modern residential building. Passive building techniques are applied to this project such as stack ventilation, radiative cooling, venturi effect, self-shading and building orientation. The building is equipped with thermocouple to study on an effect of these design technique.
2-storey house with 2 bedrooms on the second floor and living space downstairs is made of concrete structure. Upper floor plate is bigger to act as shading for lower one. The distinct feature is a chimney aligned at center of the house to ventilate during the daytime. The roofs are break into 2 pieces and tilted like butterfly wings shape into the chimney to create the pressure different for venturi effect under the roof and gain benefit from night radiation. Moreover, all main functions are categorized as service zone and living zone, oriented and break them by the chimney.
