Bioclimatic architecture

Bioclimatic architecture is 
based on three main principles 
to be reconciled in a coherent 
approach: capture the heat, 

transform, distribute and store.
In the northern hemisphere, this type of architectural 
design example is to place the main glazed openings 
to the south, to capture the sun's heat.
The glass can let in light and absorb infrared radiation, 
that is to say, to convert sunlight into heat and retain 
the sun's heat inside the house by "greenhouse ".

Moreover, these glass surfaces are protected by shutters, eaves 
or exterior horizontal sunshades, designed to prevent direct 
sunlight and overheating in summer.
A bioclimatic housing also has very few openings to the north and 
adapts these principles according to the environment (climate and 
environment of the region) and the rhythms of life of residents
