Guest bungalow  
A number of techniques were used to minimize energy consumption. The lodge building is sited carefully to catch cooling breezes, using natural ventilation to stay comfortable during the blistering summer months. Heavy masonry walls stay cool during the day and radiate warmth in the evenings, and large verandahs provide outdoor living space in the summer. Sheltered stone courtyards are ideal in the sunny, cold winter months, providing warm outdoor havens for viewing the mountains. A gravity-fed water distribution system connects a central buried reservoir to the bungalows, where solar water heaters provide hot showers.
