Shutters? Louvers? Curtains? Heliodons? a video

Lightroom Studio an architecture / design shop in Decatur, Georgia modeled their building and used a heliodon to understand how to manage the sunlight, pretty important in a modern design.

Trees play a huge part managing Atlanta's summer sun. It get wawm down here. Probably does where you live too.

  1. Great video Terry. I find it fascinating. Yes indeed I am figuring out now how important trees are in such a hot climate. We lost a huge tree in hurricane Ike last year & what an effect it's caused on the surrounding plants & lawn. Our Houston drought has not helped either. Thanks for sharing!

  2. That is a really cool video. I had no idea they used things such as this. But in hot climates or climates with a lot of sun, I can see that it is vital.

  3. Terry-
    Lightroom's work is dynamite and has brought exciting contributions to Atlanta architecture. Very excited to find your blog! Thanks for following my blog and I look forward to reading more of your posts!
