Good, clear presentation of Seasonal Window Considerations for Passive Solar homes. Windows must be climate sensitive: check to see if they show be double or triple paned, or even covered with a thermal shade in coldest climates.

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!

Using water as a "solar Mass" to trap heat.  A passive solar system.  also a sweet indoor outdoor pool.

A Trombe wall is a passive solar building technique where a wall is built on the winter sun side of a building with a glass external layer and a high heat capacity internal layer separated by a layer of air. Heat in close to UV spectrum passes through the glass almost unhindered then is absorbed by the wall that then re-radiates in the far infrared spectrum which does not pass back through the glass easily, hence heating the inside of the building.
