Climate response

  • Raised Floors to enhance air flow and avoid humidity.
  • Large openings for ample air flow.
  • Shading of outer walls
  • Roof insulation
  • Use of Passive cooling design principles like Stack effect

 

Material sensibility

  • Use of Load-bearing structural systems to reduce the use of concrete.
  • Use of Earth technology for building to reduce the use of concrete. (One ton of CO2 is released with the production of one tone of cement)
  • Use of mud plaster for ecternal rendering to reduce thermal heat gain
  • Use of salvaged timber for roof structure, doors and windows.
  • Use of Pre-fabricated RCC elements for time , cost and water efficiency, and to reduce the amount of concrete used.

Water conservation

Energy conservation

  • Use of Solar Energy to generate electricity and heat water
