Bioclimatic houses (1). South orientation

Bio houses

Hen/Stag bioclimatic houses are designed with the principles of bioclimatic architecture which are among others:

  • energy saving
  • Economic savings
  • Sustainability
  • Respect for the enviroment

To achieve these objectives, this current of architecture proposes the optimization of the natural environment of the specific place where the house, building or, in general, any construction will be built.


La orientation you can choose before making the plans. In cold areas it is advisable to orient the parts of the house where we stay longer to the south to make the most of the hot of the sun, which affects with greater force by the south. To create the Greenhouse in our favor, the best thing is that walls of these spaces are glazed, so they will warm up during the day and will radiate heat to the house by the night, preventing us from using the calefacción or that we use it  less time. The spaces that we use less can be oriented towards the north.

If your land is located in warm zone, the distribution is reversed, that is, the spaces of the house that we use most frequently the we will orient north, so we have a little shade during the summer, in these same spaces you must put the glazed wallss to have a little heat during the winter.

To keep the fresh home during the hot months (July and August), in hot areas you can install awnings and blinds where there is more sun, these plugins will help you use less the air conditioner y you will save money and energy.
