What Houzz contributors are saying:

The stairway creates a thermal chimney. A cupola at the top allows heat to rise and escape in the summer through motorized windows. In the winter the windows can be closed and a ceiling fan pushes the heat back down into the house. “In winter, when there are fewer visitors, they can shut that third floor down and use the masonry heater to focus on conditioning the first two floors,” Phinney says.

a solar chimney is a great addition to a house. It pulls hot air up and out during the summer and you can push hot air down during the winter

need to ask Marc….is this something we should be considering. Interesting house that this is part of. Not necessarily all my design style, however, some LEED things we should consider.
