The floorplan of the house is not a regular rectangle - instead it is a series of offset rectangular areas for different zones of the house allowing breezes to enter through windows in a variety of faces and corners. A courtyard with pergola is partially framed by these offset corners.

Two versions of the same house on a residential site. In the first version, there is no vegetation around the house and the breeze flows past the house.<br /> In the second version, shrubbery has been placed in the path of the breeze so that the breeze is diverted into the house windows.

The short edge of seven rectangular sites face onto a cul-de-sac, with the road entry from the south. Ideal house siting is shown for each of the rectangular sites so that living areas are on the north side of each house, which are angled so that the north face of the house is not more than 30 degrees away from north.<br /> Houses on eastern and western sites are wide and square to the site.<br /> The house on the northern site is narrow and deep and oriented square to the site.<br /> Houses…

A diagram showing recommended minimum spacing between houses to allow winter sun to enter ground floor windows. Single storey houses should be at least 6 metres apart and double storey houses should be at least 11 metres apart.

A map of Australia with contour lines starting south of the continent and fanning outwards as they pass north over the continent. On the far left (south-western WA), true north is indicated as -5 degrees west of magnetic north. On the far right (east of Tasmania), true north is indicated as 15 degrees west of magnetic north.   Adelaide- Evanston Gardens is Latitude -34○ 37m 27s and Longditude 135○ 43m 9s. True North = 6.821 west of magnetic north.
