Bioclimatis design not only provides comfort for the residents. The house is also designed to adapt to climate change that occurred.
Comfortable residential certainly be everyone’s dream. Comfortable home will provide positive energy for you and your family. A residential house comfortable when arguably it is able to protect residents from any weather, both hot and rainy. If you want to apply this design in your home, you can choose bioclimatis possible.
The design was first popularized by architect Kenneth Yeang a refreshed design that can adapt to climate changes so that every person residing or passing and Doing Activities in this building feel comfortable and familiar impression. They like being in the shade plants.
Climate is generally composed of several parts, including rain, heat, damp, and cold.
From the few examples of this climate then try bioclimatis applied to building design. This design is carried like a living creature that reacts to changes in climate.
So, more focus on how the building behaves like a plant or other living creatures. For example, if he takes the wind, is available where the wind so that it can move so that there is air circulation. If you feel the heat building, anticipated soon. For example avoid facing eastwards.
According to Bambang Eryudhawan architect, design, building design bioclimatis whose behavior is similar to living creatures when to adapt. Then the behavior is translated in the building to adapt to climate changes.
Well if you want to apply the concept bioclimatis occupancy should be designed from the outset. In addition resulted in a higher maximum, cost-effective any more. Without careful planning, this comfortable house you may be difficult to realize. For example, it turns out that the building had become too hot, not in accordance with the occupants, it must be dismantled again. So to avoid it, the concept was so important when it is drawn. Only then architect to develop it all into a building form.
“In fact, there is also a switch to using recycled materials like bamboo. The goal, so the building can adjust to the climate, “said Bambang.
The same architects Andry Hermawan said. According to him, the definition of bioclimatis architecture is essentially an integration between product architecture and the natural components that create synergy. Architecture itself is an applied science, which means science that is created from the combination of various disciplines such as physics, mathematics, anthropology, botany, and so forth.
Andry added, in designing buildings bioclimatis concept should consider many things to create a balance and symbiosis mutualism as a whole. Like, materials, ergonomics, concept, vegetation, topography, climate, and technology applications in the development of ecology.
For material elements, building materials should be selected which has several elements, among other environmentally friendly, low-level radiation, and has good energy efficiency. While the ergonomic design, related to the spatial structure, hierarchy and the appropriate level of comfort for the user.
While the concepts, technical concepts which are usually carried out scientifically. For example, said Andry, artificial and natural lighting calculation methods and DPMB BCRS. The calculation speed of the air / water velocity to reach the comfort zone area, HVAC calculations based on activity and heat release from the material, run off coefficient for the calculation of drainage requirements, the calculation of clean water and dirty water, rain water harvest, and so forth.
For vegetation, which is considered is the selection of the type of vegetation, would have to give the effect of thermal comfort, visual art, conservation of water. Other aspects, such as topography, can be done with the method of execution of work from start land clearing, stripping, cut and fill, import fillings, and other land treatment methods. In addition, note also the climate and the application of technology with ecological considerations.
“Some thoughts on the above represents only a small part of thinking and architectural design concepts bioclimatis. One concept that has been proven is the concept of vernacular architecture, though predominantly influenced by sociology and cultural elements, “said Andry.
Judging from the architectural characteristics bioclimatis, specifically those traits can not be known for each area or region has a value of “typical” individual. In addition, as mentioned above, the core of the design bioclimatis is synergy.
Even if there are, these characteristics can be known in its planning process. Maybe in the form of roofs that do not have the basic shape such as gable or a shield to reflect an architectural model bioclimatis but could use another roof. For example, call Andry, the houses are in Africa or the Eskimos have flat roofs and even a round. Andry added, architectural design is basically bioclimatis “Nature” is the value you’ll enjoy. Thus, the materials used does not have any experience literally, like a roof made of thatched or covered with grass.
Landscape lighting is all about enhancing what’s in the external environment. Our landscape lighting blends unobtrusively into any surrounding, harmonizing your property with both nature and architecture. We humbly landscape lighting integrate into any surrounding, harmonizing your property with a good nature and architecture.
1). Planning The Low – Voltage Landscape System
Strategically locating the fixtures around a structure with pools of light in contrast with darker areas provides the interplay of light and shadow that creates stunning visual impact. Low voltage lighting is easily installed, making it ideal for enhancing existing properties.
2). Sketch the Property
The front sidewalk or driveway is a natural starting point. Sketch the structure (house or office building) in context of the lot, and make note of trees for uplighting, interesting textures, signs or address markers, colorful flowerbeds, and shrubbery.
b. Path lights are commonly used for small pathways, walkways, flowerbeds and ground cover areas, with spacing of 6 to 10 feet. With a narrow sidewalk, stagger the lighting from one side to the other; however, a uniform row of fixtures works well for a wide walkway or driveway.
c. Well lights are extremely effective for aiming light up a tree or column. They should be located 2 to 4 feet from the trunk base. Directional lights aim a beam directly at an object or surface. These fixtures can be hidden under shrubs or in other unobtrusive ways
d. Special fixtures are used for a wide variety of special installations and applications, including hanging, surface, and underwater, step, and brick lighting. It is usually more attractive when the lighting effects are spread throughout the setting rather than merely aimed for symmetrical distribution.
4) Selecting the Proper Transformer
When the system lamp wattage is known, the transformer calculation is easy. Just add up the total wattage of the lamps you are using and make sure it is less than or equal to the transformer rating. Try to leave extra space on the transformer for future expansion.
