Before starting with form exploration we analyzed the climate of the region in various aspects. After that we came up with a few conclusions such as preventing heating of space during summer months, allowing winter sun to enter the space , disallowance of direct sunlight into the house by making the house completely self shaded. Using cantilevers and trees for blocking hot winds were other design solutions. After this we came up with a few strategies which will serve as a passive characteristic to our design.

The principles which we used in our design were maximum insulation, airtight construction, Rational use of the sun, comfort ventilation and stack effect. We also incorporated a design system of installing thermal water tubes in our design which absorbs and stores the sunlight in daytime and gives off heat energy during night. We then selected the materials , for wall construction we provided Autoclaved Aerated Blocks which provide insulation from harsh sunlight and also withstands the cold wind. Timber roofs were used to reduce the thermal bridge between interior and exterior.
