In the summer, the upper floor is naturally ventilated while the occupant is using the space, and heat is absorbed by the thermal slab. The lower floor is protected from direct solar gain by the cantilever and remains cool. At night the upper floor is cooled back down by night flush cooling of the thermal slab while the occupant is downstairs.

In the winter, the low angle of the sun directly heats the face of both the upper and lower floors. The thermal slabs are designed to absorb as much solar energy as possible in order to heat the apartment at night through radiation. The extrusion of the upper floor is designed to allow heat into the apartment in the winter.
