Hey all --
I am involved with a project where we want to maximize southern exposure for all of the units in the development. If the buildings were placed squarely in the proposed lots such that each building has right angles to the street, the buildings would be approximately 30 degrees west of south.
So, I'm considering rotating each building 30 degrees to the south such that it is not square on the lot or at right angles to the street. This development is on vacant land, so every house could be identically rotated.
The lots are about 50x80, so the development is fairly dense.
So my question -- has anyone come across any visuals of houses systematically and identically rotated such that they are not square with the street? Or perhaps some of you even have neighborhoods like this, where house angles are based on solar access? I am having a very difficult time picturing how this might look.
