Spanish Colonial Hacienda
San Jose Del Cabo, Baja California, Mexico
The tower is not only an attractive
Design element, but it also
functions as a "thermal tower".
Warm air rises upward and
escapes through the top. The thick
masonry walls combined with the
constant sea breeze, make it
possible for this home to be
cooled completely by means of
"passive cooling", no mechanical
air conditioning is needed.
