This intricate house in India features is a naturally ventilated home due to its 'Minaret' or 'Wind Tower.'
Minarets have been used in desert climates for centuries as a natural way to cool down a building. Hot air heats up quickly inside the tower and negative pressure at the top of the tower forces the hot air out and providing the home with constantly flowing air. What makes the Minaret House so innovate is its blend of traditional and modern building techniques and architecture. This contrast makes for a visually compelling structure that is also highly functional.
This naturally ventilated home looks geometric and harsh but but that is intentionally reflected from the environment in which the house stands. By blending tradition with technology, this home finds balance in its aesthetic.
