Cool Space via Warm Space in architecture
In terms of colors, In general, warm colors are those in the red, orange, and yellow families, while cool colors are those in the green, blue, and purple families, Think scarlet, peach, pink, amber, sienna, and gold versus cooler teal, eggplant, emerald, aqua, and cobalt
there are several architectural elements that can keep interior spaces cool, especially during the summer months, while these are many methods to make the space warmer specially in cold seasons.
We’ve compiled several ways architecture can lower or upper indoor air temperatures:
1-Designing for Natural Ventilation
Architects should consider wind currents on a building site in an effort to design and position windows and outdoor spaces effectively. Knowledge of the natural airflow can help designers situate porches, balconies, windows, skylights, and French doors in areas where they can let in (and not block out) summer breezes. For instance, large windows can be placed on opposite sides of a room or across from each other for cross ventilation.
In addition to determining natural wind currents, architects should also be aware of solar heat. Minimizing or blocking sun exposure by strategically placing overhangs and awnings above outdoor spaces or entryways can reduce indoor temperatures significantly. If large glass windows are placed in areas with direct sunshine, they will make the space warmer and warmer. Homes may also be shaded and kept cool with trees and other vegetation. Vines, for instance, are great providers of moisture during the drier and warmer months.
Along with exterior landscape design elements, the interior materials of a home also affect its ability to stay cool or warm in different seasons. In places with dry and hot desert like climates, where outdoor temperatures drop drastically in the evenings, it is crucial to use resources that are both heat reducing and retaining. Heavy and dense materials with a high thermal mass—like concrete, stone, and adobe—absorb heat during the daytime and release it slowly in the evening. Design elements like masonry walls or concrete floors help indoor temperatures stay low when it is hot outside and warm when it gets cold at night.
Furthermore, cool and warm COLORs have an undeniable role in air temperature, we are going to discuss more in future
