The central core acts as sun-trap and ventilation tower. The thermal mass wall (shown in red) accepts direct solar gain and heats the surrounding rooms.

8 Jan 2006 designExtending the passageway idea, we now try to give beds 2, 3 and 4 private access to the downstairs bathroom. The laundry moves to the north-west corner.

7 Jan 2006 designKitchen moved to the north side of the house.

On the ground floor, a short passageway gives private access to the bathroom for bedrooms 2 and 3.  To compensate for the loss of direct contact with the central core the thermal wall is extended outwards between the bedrooms, and between the master bedroom and living room on the upper floor.

Developing the design, here the central core is wider to give rooms more exposure to the thermal wall.
