We all know that tropical architecture design refers to a style of design that focuses on energy reduction, reduction of chemical usage, and bring in local labor and community support. This requires close cooperation of the design team, the architects, the engineers, and the client at all project stages, from site selection, scheme formation, material selection and procurement to project implementation. For me, the most important thing is how to bring minimum negative impact for the environment.
Tropical green building has a same basis as green building in more temperate climates, but the method of construction are completely different. In the tropics, the focus is on keeping cool, preventing insect infestations, and reducing maintenance in the home. These become big considerations for me in designing a project. Generally, tropical green building also bring a design which seeks to reduce power consumption through intelligent architecture, such as by allowing in lots natural light so that electric lights aren't needed during day time, and at night, using white painted ceiling and low energy light bulbs such as compact fluorescents or LED lamps. Solar power, wind power, and / or the use of micro-hydro are often deployed.
If we design house plans for the unique tropical style, our designs offer spacious lanais, high ceilings, and abundance of natural light...
