Residential Home Thriving on Lush but Challenging Environment


This home in the Philippines has been designed with Breezway Louvre Windows on almost every tree-hugging wall throughout the design. The home is designed in a U shape with two main wings over three levels. The Breezway Louvre Windows are used as clerestory windows in the bedrooms, bathrooms, along the stairwell and other parts of the house to enable maximum air flow and for light to reach the interiors. The house is kept pleasantly cool even on hot, humid days as wind flows freely through the openings.

In addition to this, the copious amount of Breezway Louvres also provides views of the greenery from almost all areas of the house, due to the design of the Altair Louvre and its ability to provide unobstructed views. This has a calming effect on the building occupants, no matter what time of day.

Altair® Louvres in the Breezway ios™ Surround Frame have been specified to allow for internal screening in order to protect occupants from insects in this built-up bush area.
