Ventilation is the profound secret of existence – Peter Sloterdijk
We could not agree more. The cornerstone to a healthy lifestyle is Proper interior ventilation. It helps your home rid itself of moisture, smoke, cooking odours, and indoor pollutants. Experts opine that structural ventilation controls heat levels in the attic, moderates dampness in the crawlspace and basement, and keeps moisture out of uninsulated walls.
We look at why good ventilation is necessary for a healthy lifestyle. The three main reasons are
1. To remove condensation which causes damage to the home
2. To make a healthier living environment and reduce diseases
3. To lessen the impact of VOCs
Here’s how you can ensure that your house stays well-ventilated and how we have kept these points as the main concern while designing Under the Sun by Fortius Infra.
It begins with the exteriors. It is ideal to have surroundings covered with grass or low heat-absorbing materials. Clean modern lines and natural stone dots accentuate the facade at Under the Sun. The tree-lined courtyards and the inside-outside design accounts for a naturally ventilated entrance foyer at the property.
Water is one of the most important elements that bring great ambience.
Fountains, pools or swimming pools can act as transition spaces where the air is naturally cooled before passing through interiors.
Keep the windows open. The inside-outside design allows for the tall windows that add to the ventilation. At Under the Sun by Fortius Infra, the refined design sensibilities reflect indoors in the understated luxury, exclusivity, meticulous attention to detail and the use of carefully handpicked materials and fitments. Under the Sun has been accorded the prestigious ‘Platinum Pre-Certification’ by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), corresponding to the Platinum rating under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) of the US Green Building Council.
Platinum Rating represents the highest rating available under the green building scheme, which indicates superior performance under the six key categories – Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Innovation in Design.
The key highlights of Under The Sun is 50% cross ventilation, enhanced daylighting, enhanced fresh air ventilation as well as achieving full credit for enhanced energy performance criteria.
