I have to design an entire neighborhood, that must addresses the principles of outdoor and indoor comfort and also of sustainability.
So I need to maximize the sun exposure on the ground, reducing as much as possible the shadow casting, but at the same time I need to maximize the building’s sun exposure on the sides facing the South, in order to provide a good radiance for the needs of photovoltaic panels.
I know, maybe it’s a paradox the idea of combining this two principles together (they sound like opposites)… But I’d like to know if there is a way to balance a good exposure on the ground with a good exposure on the roofs.
the purple guys are the shapes obtained with Ladybug_SolarEnvelope. The South is on the left, where the sides of those shapes are almost vertical.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
