North East Facing House Layouts

2 months ago

Hi all - just came to know about this forum.

Any architects here who would be able to advise paid or unpaid about how to better design my house to maximise the passive solar benefits, particularly in the hot summer time?

The picture below is a design that I created using my little knowledge of Passive Solar design but still feeling like this can be improved more and would perhaps require a review by professional architects.

The lot is 15 m by 40m (600 sqm) located in Perth (Zone 5 Warm Temperate).

The actual orientation of the lot is at a 45 degree angle to North. I have heard a lot from people talking about benefits of placing living in North. Any feedback will be highly appreciated. Thanks
