NHot Winds Diagram 1:2000Beaconsfield Parade, Port Philip
Cold breezes come from the southeast direction. It could go straight to the new site building, because
there is no building or tress that could be a hindrance. The wind goes through the east side and some
part of the south of the building. Moreover, it have advantages but also the disadvantages. It can give
good air in the summer term, as it will be very hot. However, in winter it also can make the house colder.
Thus, it is a good way to use passive cooling system in order to reduce the temperature inside the house.
Cross ventilation could also be a good solution. In addition it is useful to put insulation in the block the
cold breezes, to make house more comfortable in winter.
The hot wind in Beaconsfield Parade of Port Philip comes from the northwest direction. Moreover, the
existing life saver club house is blocking some part of the wind, which allows only a little hot wind that
could go through the new site building. It then enters from the west side of the bulding. So it would be
useful to place windows or ventilations, for air circulation purposes, especially during the winter season.
