Site Selection & Feasibility Studies

If you have a program in mind but no site as yet, Matrix Design Studio can help you to select a site that fulfills the requirements of your programmatic needs. Through site analysis and surveys of existing conditions, Matrix Design Studio will study the site to determine how to best situate the project. Matrix Design Studio uses the site conditions to influence the design of the project in order to take advantage of passive heating and cooling opportunities. Site analysis includes existing topography, geographic location, plant material, seasonal shifts in solar orientation and water features, views, climate and microclimate, and prevailing winds. Site analysis also includes research on the current zoning ordinances, codes, covenants, historical requirements and adjacent lot types. A thorough site analysis informs the design of the project to attenuate negative sensory factors and promotes the positive factors through defining and visually screening exterior spaces.
