The Mayan Temple built in Pinecrest, FL in 1994 integrates the Chimney Thermal Effect along with alternate energy, Easterly Wind Scoop, and Westerly Clerestory windows at the 3 story staircase which creates an instantly cooled home at the moment the windows are opened. Three pyramid soffit forms allow for free natural light to enter the home. Thermal heat lag of the solid 9” thick split face block with radiant barrier and solid foam insulation provides high energy efficiency. Earth covered ground floor walls provide for a geothermal cool sink which keeps the temperatures low. Well placed windows enhance natural air movement throughout the home.
A solid rectangle form surrounded by masonry vortex façade spirals interacting with the spa shaped eye of a hurricane and the curved eye walls inside and outside of the home, engages a “Resonate Chamber” in vibration with our Universe and Earth energies.
Designed and implemented as the first totally balanced home using the Egyptian Technique of BioGeometry, raises the vibrations to a level of Devine Resonance.
