Financial Times: Building homes for a heating planet
"In Egypt, architectural practice ECOnsult, founded by Sarah El Battouty, has received funding to scale up lessons learned from its accommodation for 138 employees on a farm in the western desert oasis of Bahareya. Here, where temperatures reach 50C, interiors maintain 19C-26C, says ECOnsult. Cooling is achieved with shading, natural ventilation, interior thermal mass and solar-powered ceiling fans."
