Inspiration from architect:

The large roof overhang on the south side and the west side, so that blocks direct sunlight in summer and with a comfortable outdoor space in addition to aid ventilation.

the natural sunlight coming through the gap between the ceiling and the “divided house.” So inside, the house is bright enough during the day, without the need for artificial lighting.
