    Can the design of our homes make them more costly to cool? Absolutely. Three of the main culprits are:Improper shading of eastern and western windows: this lets excess heat into your home, often leaving you with little choice but to flick the air-con switch on. More than half of the heat gain in a typical house is by light striking unprotected windows, especially on the east and west. An unprotected window measuring two square metres can let around three kW of heat energy into your home, which will require an additional three kW of air-conditioner capacity to offset. Poor ceiling and roof space insulation.Drafts and gaps that let heat flow in. Reflective surfaces on concrete paths, driveways and balconies that bounce the heat back into your home.

    ElevationThe elevation of a home is simply the 2D view of it, typically from the outside of the building. A set of architectural drawings will generally consist of several elevations: front, rear and side, often labelled north, south, east or west elevation. Interestingly, and somewhat confusingly, because it is a 2D drawing, you will never actually see the building the way it is viewed in a real-world elevation, because we see objects in perspective. For that reason, external 3D perspective drawings of the building will be far more useful and accurate when understanding how the building will look from a particular point; this is further highlighted for homes that sit either above or below street level. An accurately prepared 3D perspective will demonstrate the effect of either looking up or down upon the building.

    LOVE how house element looks like it’s floating above small water feature. Do NOT like horizontal slats.
