Case study-Palam Farms, New Delhi

               "People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."-Elizabeth Kubler Ross

The purpose of this quote is not to let one compare once struggle during difficult time but journey of glass from stained glass to High Performance glasses....

Now modern days glasses not only creates illusion of more space but also stops heat ( partially), UV radiation & protects from Burglar or, forced entry.

While working with this Project, it was made clear to us & our fabrication partner by Architect & Client that it is like glass house and Doors/windows are going to play a very important role in the whole project. 

Each room were having  big window opening ( approx. width 9 feet * height 8 feet) as purpose to make it maximum natural lights in but on the contrary same time it makes whole house vulnerable to more heat during summer & less thermal insulation during winter...

We have suggested to have sun path analysis to be taken in account while quoting as it will let us know that which part of house will have more heat or, less sun...

At which angle Sun moves over your Home, makes your Home vulnerable to its Heat
