This two-volume publication demonstrates how available sunlight can be used as part of site planning and architectural design to reduce fuel consumption for heating and to enhance the environment.

Topics covered in Volume 1 include site layout, building form, internal planning, the design of windows and opaque elements, ventilation, heating systems and controls, and conservatories.

Volume 2 gives detailed information on examples of buildings to which these principles have been applied. Together the two volumes provide valuable guidelines for architects, students of architecture, developers and others involved in the design, production or rehabilitation of housing.
