Passive cooling. Operable skylights are extremely efficient passive cooling devices. Placing a skylight at the top of a stairwell can enhance the stack effect, the natural tendency of warm air to rise. Opening the skylight at the top of the stack works much like opening a damper on a chimney, exhausting

The home’s energy performance focuses on passive heating/cooling techniques, natural daylighting, an improved building envelope, and efficient mechanical systems, collectively achieving overall energy performance
"Another home on the cutting edge of sustainability and green design also has very traditional architecture. This home includes features such as a passive cooling system (proper shading and the ability to take advantage of natural air movement) and Energy Star compliance (third-party-certified to use 15 percent

It's worth pointing out that passive daylighting is a means toward passive cooling (considering the light entering is not too direct, so it doesn't lead to heat gain). Every light turned off during the day cuts down on the cooling that would have been required to offset its heat.

Both are designed to passive-house standards (minimal energy input), which informed their compact form and appearance. Their north-facing entrance facades have minimal glazed openings

strategy; others worth considering include passive cooling and ventilation. Living without air conditioning is unimaginable for many people, but given the right design, planning and house orientation, it should be possible to live without the need for mechanical cooling by: Cutting down on direct sunlight
interior Tightening the envelope to keep heat from infiltrating Designing spaces that keep the air cool in the "occupied zone" Many of these strategies work in concert with one another, and passive cooling and ventilation are also best accomplished when they're part of a broader approach that sees a house

“roof overhangs with south exposure save on energy costs.--employ passive cooling
overhangs can be all sizes, and they need not be purely utilitarian. This one, on another Pacific Northwest house, provides all the benefits of passive cooling and weather protection, but it's the drama of the overhang that may matter most. This house would be aesthetically naked without this roof.
