West Window Shading
August 1, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This is a modernish house with several large window panels. There are effectively three: entryway with front door (behind the person), upstairs loft/office (above the person) and the largest in front of a stairwell just to the right of the person. It is the stairwell window assembly I am most worried about as this large window panel faces the West. Directly Westward, and has no real roof "eave" over it (just the small eyebrow at the top). So the summer heat gain will be large with these windows. I am wondering if anyone has any interesting suggestions for me - this is new construction.
