Tudor as Passive Collector

December 4, 2009

Here is still from a Sketch-Up model of a Tudor we are working on. The southeast-facing conservatory will act as a passive solar collector in winter, particularly if we design the floor with some thermal mass. The conservatory is shaded by a mature japanese maple, not rendered here.

Scottish Architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh liked to append highly-glazed spaces to his Arts and Craft residences, the rooms sometimes used for billiards.

Below is the model of the existing condition of our project.
