This is the beautiful building in from of my house in Nantes… Let’s model it first using Sketchup. Also i have used a non standard style only for visualization purposes…
If we have the North behind us this means we are going to have a lot of light… but so far we are just guessing…
Now we know if for sure. Take a look at the results by M. Capeluto’s Solar Analysis.
If we face South we notice there’s a lot of sun in the other side of the building (every line is a summarized path during a month, being the higher the closer to the summer solstice)
Please take a look at the video prepared by Tomasz Janiak, the developer of the tool.
Hope you guys find it interesting. Please let me know your thoughts.
