Solar exposure

Dividing the facade according to solar exposure

An essential part of our work was to divide the façade into different areas according to their solar exposure (transmitted solar radiation through the windows). Areas highly exposed will need increased solar protection (provided either by a solar control glass or frequently used shading) and areas less exposed could significantly benefit from clear glasses with increased Light Transmittance values.

Our analysis was carried out considering the frequency of shading use (highly affecting the views out) and the daylight levels within the occupied spaces.

The division of the facades into solar exposure areas can have a large impact on the occupants satisfaction.
