We are building a new home in Southern central New South Wales. The temperatures vary between minus 2 degrees Celsius in winter and 45 degrees Celsius in summer. There are no established trees nearby, and all the neighbouring houses are single story.
To optimise the design, we have the option of reflecting the design across the red line. Would it be better to leave the plan as is or reflect the plan on the red line? We would like to take advantage of natural light, sun position and energy efficiency.

Won't really help much reflecting.
I suggest swapping your living with your master bedroom and removing Western window.
For your Master bedroom (after swap), you would have to install double glazed Low E glass, blinds/curtains and reduce glazing area.
You don't need this huge sliding door from Family to alfresco (considering how you are planning to position your sofa) I would rather make a window there and then make the North facing Family window wider (but consider longer eaves).
