Rear elevation, Kew House.

The elevation faces a garden and the setting sun. To mitigate the effects of solar gain a louvre bi-fold shutter was installed across this façade which allowed views out but controlled heat gain. The northern façade includes a pergola with deciduous planting again to prevent too much solar gain. The pergola and bi-fold screen allow winter sun into the house.
