The importance of proper ventilation in house is manifold. Apart from influencing your body and mind, it also keeps power bills under check. How much ventilation does my house have, or, bluntly put, does it breathe? This is the question that is increasingly being posed by house and building owners, and which architects are trying to answer in the best way possible, naturally with innovative ways through Kochi apartment. Passive ventilation not only has a healthful impact on the body and mind, but also makes for lower power bills, as it minimises the need to switch on fans and lights.
In traditional houses in the State, natural ventilation was ensured by having four well-integrated structures facing the four directions and a `nadumuttom' or central compound, which let in not only air and light but also the rain.
On the whole, the average Kerala houses of yore had a large compound with open porches and distinctive structures, all with provision to let in light and fresh air. Vasthu, the ancient building code, takes into account the need for proper ventilation in houses.
By locating the fireplace to the east, for instance, it is ensured that the smoke is driven out of the house by wind that blows mainly from the west. Modern architecture too has accepted these concepts and improved upon them. In the process, certain drawbacks of old-style buildings, such as small and dark interiors, were overcome.
