The prerequisite in a residence, that which serves as a background by which all comforts are measured, is the quality and temperature of the air within, in spite of ambient conditions.
This should be measured and controlled by natural means.
The need for climate control systems only defines the magnitude of the issue itself. An inviting room in a residence speaks for itself. This is a room that has the ability to aerate and maintain a freshness without surrendering its distinct character that for ever entices the individual to it.
Rooms in residences are spaces with a give and take character, finely balanced, each with its unique offering and activity suited to it. Today’s building technology allows the architect to build more precisely and efficiently focusing so much on the star rating that a six/ seven star ‘plastic box environment’ may be the end result.
