Influential the Optimum Orientation for Residential Units in Housing-Blocks
Orientation is the main aspect in climatic design. The architect faces the problem of choosing a residential unit
type to reach the optimum orientation in housing-blocks. The problem of orientation in residential unites was discussed and
the aspects affecting it were defined. Two scales were developed to evaluate orientation efficiency of unite types in housing-
blocks. A chart was presented demonstrating the sequence of information flow and the evaluation mechanism to reach the
optimum orientation for all units.
