Shade Effect Study      Natural Light Interior                   Living Shade        

Design simulation and studies are developed from the BIM created model a virtual environment carefully balanced to meet the design intent.

Shade Effect Study

Investigation of multiple buildings on site with building envelope considered and natural light possibilities in the building are a human needs design principle and the reason that we have invested in the ability to produce this design study content. The examples below offers insight specific to the site and the extreme solar days effecting the proposed development.

Light Control Devices

The Living Sun Shade as detailed in the images below offers a nice option to meet the extremes of this northern site.

The physical structure for the shade is a design detail element of the building but the shade material is a living shade device that sheds its leaves in the winter to allow the warming sun to enter the space.
