THIS IS WHAT YOUR FUTURE HOUSE SHOULD LOOK LIKE!
The idea of owning a house should go beyond just having a place you call "my house". It must be more than just "my house ",
- it must be a home with functional facilities!
- It must meet the total comfort requirements!
- It must represent the class in which you belong!
Taking these three things into consideration, we architects design homes for clients.
Functionality: A building that functions as it is intended is the underpinning of a quality "whole" building. ... Analyzing the building structural concept, i.e. structural grid, dimensions, and floor-to-floor heights that allow for flexibility in internal layouts.
TEC(Total Environmental Comfort) : your house must meet this criteria for it to be called a home. The concept of TEC is about designing buildings in such a way that what you feel when you go under a tree away from the hot sun should be the same when you go inside your house! TEC is obtainable when you consider the thermal comfort.
Having a windward and a leeward windows could meet this criteria. Also having provision for a heater in the house could also meet this criteria. These will act as a solution for the hot and cold weather conditions
The idea behind class is about aesthetics! What does your house look like? What should it look like?
I will talk about that in my next post.
Keep in touch!
God bless you!
