The research presents an enquiry into the question of the envelope enclosure and the need to provide comfort to the human body, a fundamental function of architecture. The paper considers thermal comfort from the perspective of socio-cultural conventions, arms and assumptions. It also offers an alternative approach via a built project which considers a careful placing in nature, and consideration for the site, orientation and climate.
