Passive solar heat gain

External considerations:

• The main facade of a dwelling should face close ( ±30° approximately).

• The spacing between dwellings should be sufficient overshading.

• Where possible contours should be exploited either to solar gain or minimise adverse effects.

• Areas with particular overheating risk should be considered when planning building layout and form.

• The provision of deciduous trees and shrubs will offer summer shade whilst allowing penetration by winter sun.
