What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Cool Architecture for Hot Summers
Create a chimney effect. Again from high school science, we all know that hot air rises. So by providing a taller space surrounded by lower spaces we can create a chimney effect. The cooler air closer to the ground comes in and, as it warms up, is expelled through the top. By introducing constant air movement and by continuously replacing warm with cool air, you'll make the interior of your home more comfortable.

What's not to like, except that it might not stay warm in the winter in a cold climate. I love the stained wood ceilings, and the way the rooms are open to each other from kitchen to living room.

An easy way to create the chimney effect is to put an operable skylight above the stairway. When open, the skylight will draw the cooler air from the lower floors up, keeping the top floor cooler in the process
