Jamieson Residence - Large House, Gladstone QLD

This large house in Gladstone was designed to accommodate the hot local climate. Generous roof overhangs and shading devices will help to shade the external walls and windows in the hotter months. The use of glazed louvers and large window openings will also ensure ample natural ventilation, especially for the cooler night-time periods, when natural breezes will be used to cool down the internal thermal mass. The use of shaded concrete and masonry within the house will provide much-needed passive cooling, during the heat of the day. Generous windows and shaded (and insulated) outdoor recreation areas will also allow the client to appreciate the stunning natural scenery around the site.
