What it is:

The site analysis (The Sketch) is my observation about how infrastructure, topography, location, exposure and views affects the building layout, orientation, location, materials, exterior design and interior arrangement.

What you learn:
  • What advantages and disadvantages your site poses
  • How utilities integrate with your design
  • Where the best spot is to put the home
  • How the lot shapes the home
Exercises we use:
  • I visit the site to study the topography and email you a report
  • You share feedback about my observations
