Here at ph43, we love trees and all they do for us! This project has the fortune of being within the City, yet surrounded by a number of mature trees. Incorporating sight-lines to the trees as much as possible during design has created some beautiful views and passive benefits. Being primarily deciduous trees they will assist in summer shading, and dropping their leaves for in winter will allow direct solar gains to assist in lowering the heating load. Trees are amazing for passive solar control!
