The Power Of The Sun: Embracing Solar Power and Natural Light

We believe that harnessing the power of the sun is not just about embracing sustainability—it’s about creating a home that works harmoniously with the environment and caters to your unique lifestyle. Sure, you’ve thought about how the placement and orientation of your house can maximize natural light coming inside, but have you considered how the size of windows openings and placement of awnings can have a significant effect on the heating and cooling demand of the home?  Our expertise ensures that every aspect of your home is designed with precision and care, placing a strong emphasis on utilizing sunlight in the best ways possible for your home.

When it comes to site placement on the plot of land, we meticulously analyze the orientation of your home to capture the optimal amount of sunlight throughout the day. By positioning your home to face the sun during its peak hours, we can significantly reduce your reliance on artificial lighting, and energy required for heating.

Imagine waking up in winter to a home bathed in natural light from the low-angled sun, with strategically placed windows that invite the warmth and brightness of the winter sun into your living spaces. But then in the summer, the window incorporates a stylish awning or simple roof overhangs that blocks the high-angled summer sun and its ability to over heat the home. 

Window selection is another crucial element in our design process. Well crafted, high quality, energy-efficient windows not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home, but also play a vital role in temperature regulation. By incorporating features like triple glazing, air-tightness on installation with spray foam, low-e coatings, or special window tints (depending on which direction the window faces), we ensure that your windows help maintain a comfortable indoor climate while reducing energy consumption. Our interior designers are also experts at selecting window coverings suited to our clients needs; whether that is privacy, light control, or automated schedules.

As a builder who focuses on sustainability first, we are committed to integrating electricity from solar power into our homes. Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are an efficient and affordable way to convert sunlight into renewable energy, significantly lowering your electricity bills and carbon footprint. Our in-house solar team collaborates closely with you to design a solar PV system tailored to your energy needs, ensuring that your home is as eco-friendly as it is elegant. 

At the heart of our approach is a dedication to personalized service and attention to detail. We listen to your vision, collaborate with you throughout the process, and bring your dream home to life with the utmost care. Harnessing the power of the sun is just one of the many ways we strive to create homes that reflect your desires and needs. Trust us to build a home where every ray of sunlight is a testament to thoughtful design and sustainable living.
