This home features Rammed Earth construction combined with a 4 story "Stack Effect" natural ventilation and passive cooling Lookout Tower. The Rammed Earth provides excellent thermal mass for both heating and cooling. Cool air is introduced at the Lower Floor and rises vertically 4 stories, creating a venturi air column, which exhausts high out the Lookout Tower Upper Floor. This creates a negative pressure throughout the whole house, resulting in pulling in cool air from all open windows and doors.
