A 35 Degrees house is built on 6 design principles to achieve a well-built, comfortable home with low running costs:

01North-facing orientation
Allowing the sun to warm the home through a combination of external glazing and internal thermal mass

02External shading
Shielding walls and windows from direct sun to stay cool in summer

03Good insulation
keeping the heat out and the warmth inside

04Functional spaces that reflect your lifestyle
Creating a house that’s liveable and adaptable

05Airtight building envelope
Avoiding unwanted draughts and air leakage by minimising penetrations in the building fabric

06Cross ventilation
To capture breezes and reduce the need for air-conditioning
