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.

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.
