Sun Tempered Architecture – Socrates House — 3 Comments

  1. Wow, I just read that site before I saw your post. That architects website is a great read, better than some 200 page passive solar books I’ve read.

  2. When I began to design our home that is currently under construction, I got really excited about this principle. I was very disappointed to find out that where we are at 19.3434N, the sun is 4.5 degrees north of vertical on June 21 and 47.1 degrees above the horizon on Dec 21. I wanted a 1 meter overhang around the house to protect the earthen walls from rain and I could not see a way to incorporate these two ideas.

    For those that are around 30N or more, this principle would work wonderfully.
