    My impression is those shades probably acted like insulation with the summer sun and played a role in the airflow hugging the angled glazing. I'm assuming the ridge vents wouldn't have been open in the winter to set up that flow. Shouldn't be very hard to set some pulleys outside the glass though in a rougher climate maybe kill two birds and install roll up security doors to deal with hail.

    The excess air exchange below could probably be dealt with by running a sheet of plastic or other tarp across at the 2nd floor level extending perpendicularly from the glazing out several feet. Combine that with a dozen water barrels against the exterior ground floor wall with a solar pump circulating it through buried pex and they get their year round tropical garden to work. In summer the combination should also cool the upper levels by 5 and 10 degC in the bargain. Very neat concept. Just imagine the views you could have all year long.

    I didn't need to hear a word from the homeowner. The minute I saw the design I thought, "I must be hot as hell in there." Serious miscalculations all around. Ugly as sin, too.

    So the problem of this house is to much transparent and NO thermal mass. You coud use dirt walls for all the bottom levels or even on the second level to have the absorption of the excess heat. This is bad design, poor research, it makes me a bit sad because this kind of things are easy to calculate. . .

    I watch your videos because I like the contents, but there are things that are distracting me from enjoying them, so after watching quite a few, decided to comment of what I am experiencing.

    When you start one of these films you must first have a opening shot of the person speaking. Humans naturally want to see who is speaking. Because you didn't do this in this video, I spend the first two minutes trying to see her face, it is just a natural thing. Your brain just naturally want to see the persons face close-up. I totally was distracted by that and realized I couldn't recall most of the stuff she was saying in the beginning. And you kept a distance from her. Just at 2:24 when you could finally see her face, you cut away. It is simply jarring. I'm saying this as a film director & editor. The first time you see her face a bit close-up is 5:07 into the video, and then you immediately cut away. That is really frustrating watching a video that has the person talking for so long and not having seen the person face.

    Firt real talking head-shot is 8:46 into the footage. That needed to happen within the first 1-2 min of the video. At 11:23 is the first actual moment I get to see what the woman actually looks like.

    It’s so weird. Her house is surrounded by apartment blocks just across the street. Nice to have a lot of glass but if you just see other balcony…not a pretty view. Same thing for the people living in the apartments. What did they see all day long? A strange house in a glass buble…actually more a pilot then a polish design. There is absolutely no urban planning rules.

    So the air flow issue could easily be fixed with that design. You would have to add in a vertical tube that had hatches that opened at different heights to allow airflow to different areas. Or add a resistance barier to disrupt the bad airflow and help redirect it.

    Why arent you using atmospheric generators? Atmospheric condenser? Bury a rmh on the first floor flowing up to some straw cob walls…other walls could ve straw bale, the west and north walls…you could even have a multiple rmh system…you also have more than enough space if you check out vertical gardening…hockey arena, polycarbonate and simply put a 90degree elbow facing away at the top of the chimney.

    If she paint in white some part of the plastic panels and make a real green roof in all the 3rd floor, she will resolve the warm issue…

    Not good/efficient construction- expensive not durable/not longlasting , that type of construction is supposed to be starting a little bit lower beneath ground level to get heat from ground in winter time and to cool it in summer time, there suppose to establish some average temperature above zero inside , not extra hot when sun shines in summer and extra cold when sun is gone and it's cold outside

    Fixing just some of the flaws might make this work as a functioning greenhouse.

    its not a bad idea to put the green space on the roof the bad idea is not having an open water source or vents, i mean most of the "mistakes" are very, very basic stuff

    Comments about the Dutch climate are nonsense. The reality is that it rains very little. I live here. (Holland is not a country; it's two provinces in the west of the country. The country is Nederland.) It is not a desert thank heavens), but more often than not, it's not raining. Check the statistics; rainfall varies throughout the nation.

    I was wondering if you put wall in-between each terrace would that help reduce heat rising up through the greenhouse?

    The LEAST attractive part of this house is landscaping: All that tiresome, wearisome turf, grass lawn…..which does nothing unless you keep sheep or cattle….!?!?
