The size of the ancillary dwelling plans harmonize with local authority planning schemes that provide planning policy for ancillary dwellings. The raking ceilings of the ancillary dwelling plans conform to passive solar design principles and augment solar heat gain during the cooler winter months when correctly orientated onsite.

The ancillary dwelling plans incorporate sustainability and energy-efficient design principles to maximize passive solar design principles by catching the winter heat gain when the sun is at lower azimuth and storage in the dwelling’s thermal mass. The reinforced concrete slab that operates as the heat sink for release of the radiant heat energy through the cooler evening hours. The  fenestration of the residence integrates calculated sun shading to eliminate the worst of the summer heat gain while highlight windows expunge stale hot air using ‘stack effect’ ventilation principles.
