Passive Solar features of the new Truckee USFS Office
As the project moved on to preliminary design concepts, basic layout of the spaces and the building section were determined. The building was stretched out along the east/west axis to maximize winter solar gain in the winter, minimize summer solar gain from east and west, and to effectively provide glare-free daylight to the interior. A two-story sunspace corridor that acts as a comfort buffer zone was set along the southern edge of the building. Open office spaces were placed in the center of the building, and private offices were set along the north wall.
