Using the sun's heat to cool your home.

There are two principles at work on this hillside site. Hot air rises and the temperature below ground remains constant, a few metres down. Add to this the natural air conditioning provided by pulling air across a well placed water feature. 

On a hot dry day a cool breeze will flow through the home, using the convection created by the afternoon sun. This will prepare the space ready for you to get a good night's sleep.
