site design #1 attempt - please review

Postby penguinqueen » Thu May 17, 2018 3:40 pm

Hi everyone,

I am taking SPD in 2 weeks, it's going to be my first spd test, and the last...I have recently passed CDS and PPP, and I am struggling with spd vignette, since it is much harder than the others and has so many variances!
I am posting my first attempt as attached, please please leave a comment if you can!

Also, I have some questions in regards of the programming:

1. what is building limit line? does it mean the outer line of building not the inward offset?
2. the program requires "the pedestrian plaza shall receive the noonday summer sun". does is mean that the whole plaza should have nothing to its south? (if that's the case, then I am wrong with my layout).

Thank you! I really appreciate it!

2. the program requires "the pedestrian plaza shall receive the noonday summer sun". does is mean that the whole plaza should have nothing to its south? (if that's the case, then I am wrong with my layout). Yes, very wrong. Why did you do that?

Thank you! I really appreciate it!

Inadequate building separation.
Why is there a dead-end drive heading toward Bentley?
Restaurant view of the pond partially blocked by new coniferous trees.
Why are there 2 walks to the public walk?
Too much of the PP is shaded by the OT.

Thank you so much for pointing out Sparky83!
It seems to be a horrible solution...I am going to try to read /understand the program again and come up with better solution!
