4th Year Project 1: LRC site analysis By Kioko S.W

Important factors to consider for design of public spaces
These would include plazas, open spaces, communal amenity areas, parks among others. The new net shadow must maintain an average of 50% of any public space having access to daylight for at least five hourly interval times.
For circulation areas outside no new net shadow in any one spot for more than three consecutive hourly test times of the test date only.NOTE; Ground level residential private outdoor amenity space such as backyards to low rise residential buildings. The no impact zone is the area measured from the exterior rear wall outward 7.5 meters or to the property line, whichever is less.

Important factors to consider for design of public spaces
Microclimate.
Of note is the microclimate resulting from the natural elements, and man-made elements, such as buildings and landscaping and how they are affecting and/or will affect the site. For example, a windbreak that protects against the winds can change the microclimate of the site significantly.

Shade.
Shade is often required in the hot seasons, but in most cases a little sun is desirable. Obstructions on a site may block sunlight access at times when it is required and this is an important consideration to take into account.
When considering sunlight and building design, assess the impact of obstructions in the future as well as the present. For example, a small tree on an adjacent site may grow into a large one that blocks sun, a building may be erected on a currently vacant site or an existing building may be demolished and replaced by a larger one.
