Visualizing a Site Analysis

Ever wonder how the environment and natural surroundings will affect the design of a home? Here is a sample of a typical site analysis we think through in the design process, and sometimes illustrate for the client. The interplay of the building mass and natural features, such as trees, sun path, wind patterns, and the form of the land are important items to consider and can help ensure that the site is utilized to maximum advantage.
