Preliminary Home Plans…

    Thanks for the update. Plans are nicely drawn and clear to read. My first though is how do I read the twist of the roof in the plan. i.e how can you made the variable parameter have an effect of the interior layout? How might you establish this as a basic layout that can be slightly modified according to the differing orientations? One aspect of this is that the diagonal line of the twisted roof cuts the plan along its length. It would be difficult to divide the house via this regulator. However I wonder if the internal arrangement, cross wall etc respond in some way. I don’t have an answer to this but it seems that overidding concept of the scheme should appear in each facet of its representation. Another way of exploring this would be to make some rough models that could be used to explore the scheme more 3 dimensionally. How is the diagonal of the roof enjoyed as a spatial experience.

    The other aspect of the scheme that might come in for scrutiny id the position of the cooling chimney. I imagine that it should be more centrally placed to distribute the air more evenly through the plan.

    Good development. Perhaps get some thin black sharpies and do a load of sketches at 1/4 or 1/2 scale.
