This is Episode 4 of Season 1.
So far this season, we’ve been exploring the idea of orientation. And the importance of knowing yours when designing, renovating or building your home. We’ve talked about northern and eastern orientations and sunlight.
In this episode, we’ll talk about all things SOUTH.
This will help you get it right if you’re seeking ways to make your home feel great, and also if you have you have a south-facing home … or a home that faces south-east or south-west.
So what do you need to be aware of with southern sunlight? (And is there such a thing, given that in the southern hemisphere, our sun moves through the north?)
A southern orientation can be challenging to work with if you want to maximise northern sun in your home.
Amelia will outline 5 specific design strategies you can implement in creating your new home or renovation, that will bring northern light into a south-facing home.
Let’s dive deeply into:
- What southern light is like
- What’s not great about southern light
- How we need to shade and shelter from southern light (it’s actually the sunlight on the edges of our southern orientation)
You’ll understand in detail:
- What rooms need to be facing south
- What rooms don’t need to be facing south
- 5 key strategies to use in your design
And if you have a south–facing home, you’ll learn:
- What your priorities should be if you’re designing a home for a south-facing orientation
- What can go wrong in designing for southern sunlight
- Some homework for you as you research your project
- What else you need to know about designing for a south-facing home
