Clerestory

The clerestory was conceived to simultaneously satisfy the following operation requirements:
- Entrance of natural illumination in the back of the house interior;
- Ventilation with exit of hot air in typical days of summer - this induces entrance of cool air from shaded area and rock sub-corridors;
- In typical days of winter, to keep the circulating hot air in the house interior (see scheme in overview) with entrance of natural illumination, through the innovative winter/summer device "ceiling windows" for clerestory isolation/interaction.

Adjustable "ceiling windows", which allow control of air flux without prejudice to clerestory natural illumination.
