Inspiration from architect:

Its outer skin is consisted of aluminum isolating panels, that prevents loose of heat produced by human bodies. The inner skin is made of wooden perforated panels that enable to penetrate the body moisture away; therefore the interior skin is always dry and warm. As a result of the vertical interior concept the upper floor is always warmer then the down floors.
