Natural illumination.  Of course, this all depends where you live and what your window orientation is.  At my latitude, I don't have to worry about not getting enough solar penetration into a room because at mid-winter, the sunlight penetrates almost 5 metres.

Diagrams shows a room that using light shelves to create a bright area, as well as allows natural sun light to fall on the other side of the room. The diagrams also show light shelves being used to direct passive light inside the room.

Passive cooling & heating, I especially like the concept of adding humidity through a conservatory:

Passive cooling & heating, unique for such a diagram to include a conservatory area. Indoor gardens, wall gardens, conservatory areas etc have a huge role to play in eco-friendly design.

Controlling heat gain from the sun: horizontal overhangs are more efficient on the south side of a building, whereas vertical fins are more efficient on the east or west elevations. Egg-crates, a combination of vertical and horizontal elements, are particularly efficient in hot climates because they screen out most, if not all, of the sun's rays.
