great passive solar design- I would plant row of deciduous trees in front of glass so that in the winter that could act as a giant trombe wall but be shaded to keep it cool in the summer. Trees that max out at 2 stories would allow south face 3rd level roof to accommodate panels!

Greenhouse Ventilation | Installing a fan driven ventilation system helps to regulate temperature, ensures a steady supply of fresh air, and can provide wind pollination if sufficiently strong and well-placed. Without occasional strong winds trees may fail to develop sufficient stress wood, which can lead to etiolation and weakness. If managed pollinators are being used then it's important to ensure that any ventilation system is secured against egress.
