Throughout the world the different house types clearly reflect the influence of weather and climate. The simple reason for this is the fact that the main function of housing is to provide safe and comfortable shelter to the inhabitants.
Besides, it should also protect the material contents from the onslaught of the weather elements. In fact, human beings need a shelter in the form of a house where they can live safely in different weather conditions such as storms, rains, extreme heat and cold etc. House types of any type, from a poor man’s ordinary cottage to a grand palatial building, need the consideration of atmospheric conditions in the selection of site, the materials to be used and the design etc.
Another important consideration is that of the outside environment. It is also important to keep in mind the economic as well as social factors.
