A freestanding masonry Trombe wall is added to the wood frame construction of Sueños del Cañon condos to increase energy efficiency.
The outside masonry surface is painted a dark color before the windows are installed to increase heat absorbency.
The finished wall panels have the same appearance as adjacent windows.
This illustration shows the convection heating/cooling cycle produced by a vented Trombe wall.
